What is Ergonomics?
The National Institute for Occupational Safety and Health (NIOSH) defines ergonomics as the science of fitting workplace conditions and job demands to the capabilities of the working population. In other words, it is the relationship between people, the work they do and their work environment. It is about adapting the workplace to fit the worker. Modifications to the work, work tasks, and how people perform their work can help improve comfort, safety, and productivity.
