How can Ergonomics increase performance?
Not only are Ergonomics recognised for allowing businesses to meet health and safety legislations but for its ability to increase performance within the workplace (Jan Dul, W. Patrick Neumann, 2008.) Ergonomics enhance the factors that influence the interaction between people and machines. This can be achieved by re-designing the factors, within the work environment, that limit the human machine interaction (R.S. Bridger, 2008.)
The work environment is an aspect of the physical environment that directly effects this interaction and thus, productivity (Emmanuel M. A, 2012). Arguably, the work environment is the most critical aspect regarding productivity and employee satisfaction. Hence, it is important that employers invest in the factors that contribute to the work environment.
