Ergonomics is the science which studies the interaction between the human and the environment.

Ergonomics is fitting the task and the environment to the human. It takes into account the individual’s stature, capabilities and limitations as well as the task physical and mental demands.

Ergonomics customizes the workplace to the individual’s needs, to reduce employee fatigue or discomfort and maximize productivity.

Proper and sound ergonomics is important to both comfort and preventing injuries.
