An Overview of the Theory of Ergonomics


Ergonomics programs don't have to cost the sky. Funding is available.

Ergonomics is the science of fitting the job to the human instead of forcing the human to fit the job. This science takes into account the human body, what it is safely designed to do and how to safely continue its performance. The musculature is designed to stretch to facilitate the person's movements when performing a job. If the musculature does not have sufficient time to relax or be toned for further energy expenditure, musculoskeletal injuries occur. This costs employers time lost from work, workers compensation claims in addition to money spent training new workers to perform a job until the original worker can return to work.
