Ergonomics. We’ve all heard that word before in a meeting or in safety training, but what does it actually mean?

Well, ergonomics is a science that deals with designing the work environment for natural interaction, to reduce stress and eliminate injuries associated with the overuse of muscles, bad posture, and repeated tasks.

Did you know: 1.5 million workplace injuries are reported each year, and about half are directly attributed to poor ergonomics...

Professions at risk for ergonomic injuries include assembly line workers, utility workers, and office workers, but any worker with repetitive, physical tasks is thought to be susceptible.

Ergonomics aims to make the job fit the person, not the other way around.

So that leaves the question; how do I go about being more ergonomic?

Until next time, stay positive, stay safe and remember your safety training!
