Ergonomics 101

Ergonomics is the science of ensuring people and equipment can work safely and easily together. When setting up a workstation, it needs the right equipment in the correct position for each person. Proper ergonomic equipment is essential to keeping your employees healthy, happy and productive. There is no one size fits all approach when it comes to ergonomics. Everyone is an individual and their needs must to be addressed as such.

When we think of injuries we do not often think of musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). These are injuries that occur from: repetition, incorrect postures, force, lack of movement, vibration, cold and impact loading. MSDs cost employers large amounts of money and lost productivity.

It is important to act proactively. Having each workstation armed with the right ergonomic equipment and set up for the individual using it, is the first step.
