ERGONOMICS PRACTICE EXAMPLES

The field of practice of professional ergonomists is very wide and covers all aspects having to do with the health, wellbeing and productivity of people at work. Some ergonomic interventions concentrate on designing workplaces so that the work can be done comfortably and safely over a long period of time. Others look at safety and ease of use of tools and computer interfaces. Others look at the organization of work systems to optimize workflow and avoid errors.

CREE

These papers do not cover all the areas of ergonomics practice but they may be helpful for people looking for examples of how a professional ergonomist works to provide solutions for companies wanting to improve the efficiency of their workers without decreasing their safety, health or well-being.
