Ergonomics

The term Ergonomics is derived from the Greek word, “ergon” which means “work”.
Ergonomics is “an applied science concerned with designing and arranging things people use so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely”. It is also called as “human engineering” or “human factors engineering”.

A workplace which is designed and set-up in an Ergonomic way not only increases the productivity of employees multiple-folds but also help the organization save millions. Ergonomic interventions reduce the absenteeism due to pain and injury and enhance the morale of the workers. Occupational Health and Safety Association (OSHA) reports an ROI of $4 for every $1 spent on ergonomic interventions.

Each year, hundreds of otherwise healthy computer professionals suffer from neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, wrist pain, headache, etc. These symptoms, in 99.99% of cases, turns out to be work related injuries or Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) aka Computer Related Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD).

Often the main cause of these types of injuries is bad Ergonomics setup or poor awareness of “best ergonomic practices at work” among the work force. Ergonomics, in a layman’s language, simply means the best fit between the worker and the work environment including the job task.
