Keeping their work environments safe and efficient and traditionally concerned with factory workers, ergonomic professionals have expanded their work to include all types of workers from laborers to seniors to office workers & students.

In addition, it looks for means to adjust our environment to lower the risks of illness and harm, enhance productivity, and improve the caliber of our work life.

Now, we continue to look for ways to boost the relationship between our “tools” and our jobs. One means to do that is to look at the risk factors in the workplace. These are able to be divided into 3 areas: physical characteristics, environmental features, and workplace hazards.

1. Physical Characteristics Of Work:

  • Bearing

  • Recovery time
  • Velocity/acceleration
  • Heavy exertion that is dynamic

2. Segmental Vibration Environmental Characteristics Of Work:
