Ergonomics
Date: 7/17/2012

Ergonomics is the field of study that involves the application of knowledge about human capacities and limitations to the design of workplaces, jobs, tasks, tools, equipment, and the environment. Ergonomics is essentially fitting the workplace to the worker. The primary goal of ergonomics in the workplace is to reduce the risk of injuries and illnesses (cumulative trauma disorders or CTDs) by reducing or eliminating worker exposure to work-related musculoskeletal disorder (WRMSD) hazards.
