Abstract

Ergonomics seeks to reduce your exposure to workplace hazards. A hazard is defined as a physical factor in your workplace that can cause harm to your body. Working in awkward or uncomfortable postures and using excessive force or high repetition to complete a task are examples of ergonomic hazards. Ergonomics focuses on improving efficiency and lowering the risk of discomfort or injury by changing the work environment, modifying a task with ergonomically friendly equipment, or using different work procedures. Employees are more productive when they work in a comfortable environment. Employees perform better when they sit in a position that allows for good posture, fewer movements, and greater reach and height. Create a job and a workstation that supports this concept and you'll quickly see an increase in employee productivity. Ergonomics will not only increase employee productivity, but it will also increase retention, decrease absenteeism, and increase employee involvement in your organization. This occurs when employees notice that the company takes the time and effort to ensure that their employees work in a healthy and safe environment. The recommendation of the study is to help the employer to reduce the fatigue of the employees.
