What is ergonomics?

Proper Ergonomics ensures that products and environments are comfortable, safe and efficient for people to use

What is ergonomics? Ergonomics is the application of scientific information concerning humans to the design of objects, systems and environment for human use. Ergonomics comes into everything which involves people. Work systems, sports and leisure, health and safety should all embody ergonomics principles if well designed.

Office workers know the word "Ergonomics" very well these days. Business are very careful to make their offices a comfortable place to work where their employees do not get overuse injuries due to bad ergonomics.

To ensure your workspace is ergonomically correct, your computer screen should be at the same level as your eyes, your elbows should be bent at a 90 degree angle to access your keyboard and your back should be straight. If any of these things are not right, you could risk carpal tunnel syndrome or another overuse injury.
