What Ergonomics Entail
Evaluating working conditions from an ergonomics standpoint involves looking at the total physiological and psychological demands of the job on the worker. A successful ergonomic intervention involves creating affordances that support safe, effective, productive and comfortable working conditions. Ergonomic hazards are avoided primarily by the effective design of a job or jobsite and better designed tools or equipment that meet workers' needs in terms of physical environment and job tasks.

We recommend correct work practices and administrative controls. If necessary, we suggest personal protective equipment.
