What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics studies the relationship between workers and their environment, especially the equipment they use. Computers and related products, such as desks and chairs, are frequently the focus of ergonomic design. Employees use these products for extended periods of time on a typical work day. If these products are poorly designed or improperly adjusted for human use, the person using them may suffer unnecessary fatigue, stress, and even injury, From the Greek word ergon meaning work, and nomoi meaning natural laws, this is the applied science of equipment design, as for the workplace, intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort.
