Ergonomics

Ergonomics in Occupational Health and Safety (OHS) focuses on optimizing the interaction between workers and their work environment to enhance safety, comfort, and productivity. It involves designing workspaces, tools, and tasks to fit the capabilities and limitations of the human body. OHS guidelines stress the importance of ergonomic assessments to identify potential risks related to posture, repetitive motions, or improper equipment design that could lead to musculoskeletal disorders or injuries. Implementing ergonomic solutions such as adjustable workstations, proper seating, ergonomic tools, and training on correct body mechanics helps reduce the risk of injuries, improves efficiency, and promotes a healthier and safer work environment for employees.
