What ergonomics means for us
ERGONOMICS (Greek): the science of optimising the working conditions (especially in terms of preventing health damage). Technical, medical, psychological as well as social and ecological findings are used to minimise the stress on employees as far as possible.
Research in the field of ergonomics explores the capabilities and limits of working people. In this context, the focus is on adapting the work or equipment to the person while at the same time improving the working conditions and results.
Why do we concern ourselves with an ergonomic workplace design?
- Human aspects
- Health and physical integrity
- Increasing well-being and vitality
- Higher quality of live and work
- Economical aspects
Healthy employees are more motivated, more efficient and more productive. Dynamic processes improve performance. Lower absenteeism offers savings potential. More occupational safety improves profitability.
