Ergonomics is understood as the discipline that seeks to adapt the work environment and machinery to the anatomical, psychological and physiological characteristics of the people working in a company, organization or factory. Some of the most important objectives of ergonomics are:

  • To investigate occupational hazards in order to reduce them and thus prevent occupational accidents.
  • Jobs and functions should be adjusted to the employee’s functions and not the other way around.
  • When introducing new technologies in the workplace, ergonomics ensures that they match the skills and characteristics of the workers.
  • Apply ergonomic standards and provisions in the furniture, materials and tools that employees will use to perform their work activities.
  • Create an optimal work environment.
  • Increase productivity and avoid employee turnover.

Among the most important types of ergonomics are: physical ergonomics (deals with the anthropometric, anatomical, biomechanical and physiological characteristics of the worker), visual ergonomics (seeks optimal visual performance of workers exposed to screens or with a demanding visual activity) psychological ergonomics (deals with the mental processes involved in the interaction between the user, machines and the environment) and organizational ergonomics.
