Gregory Ergonomics



What is Ergonomics?

Webster’s New World Dictionary (College Edition) defines ergonomics as “the study of problems of people adjusting to their environment; especially the science that seeks to adapt work or working conditions to suit the worker”. With the average office worker spending about 80% of their time in a seated position, good posture is vital to ensure good health and well being, increased productivity and the saving of lost man hours due to related health problems, in particular back and neck pain, headaches, leg and feet problems.


Why is Ergonomics Important?

The body of knowledge covering ergonomic risks in this area is still relatively small but it is rapidly growing. Ergonomics is good for people and the bottom line. Not only does it improve employee well being and morale but it can save money by reducing costs related to workers compensation, absenteeism and staff turnover.
