Ergonomics is a science that deals with the study of functions and the interaction between the three elements that make up a working system: Man, Machinery and Environment. The objective of workplace ergonomics is to improve system performance and to protect the well-being, health and safety of workers. To achieve this goal, various areas are investigated, including the human factor and the risks related to the manual handling of loads and repeated movements.

Learn the fundamentals of ergonomics, how to identify and avoid injuries, best practice exercises while working and how to improve your workplace depending on your task.
