What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the process of designing and arranging work spaces, systems and products so that they are appropriate for the people using them.

It aims to improve work spaces and environments to minimise the risk of injury.

 

Statistics

According to Safe Work Australia, the total economic cost of work-related injuries and illnesses is estimated to be $60.6 billion. Low back pain is one of the most common work related injuries and a leading contributor in work missed days.
