So, What are Ergonomic Assessments?

In the field of workplace health and safety, ergonomic assessments focus on the interaction that occurs between machine and man in the workplace setting. Specifically, it focuses on providing adequate training to employees and the provision of the optimum working environment.

When poor working procedures and bad design exist in the workplace, it can lead to frustrated and overworked employees and the net result is lower productivity. Ergonomic assessments employ a science that seeks to remove potential risks that result in injuries and improve processes to maximise productivity and safety in the workplace.
