What is Ergonomics?
In it’s simplest form, Ergonomics is working in a way that puts the minimal amount of stress on your body, for the period of time that you are sat in a position.
To this extent, it is about designing a working environment around an individual, rather than expecting them to adapt to what is already there.
As humans, we are all different, heights, weights, shapes and sizes, no two people are the same, and as such no workstation should be the same either.
In relation to the layout and design of an employees desk set-up, there are many factors that should be considered in order to maximise the ergonomic benefit available to them.
