Ergonomics

Ergonomics is the scientific study of how people interact in their environment. Ergonomics deals with the interaction of technological and work situations with the human being. The main goals in the application of ergonomics are to create the most productive use of human capabilities, and the maintenance of human health and well-being. To accomplish this, the job must 'fit the person' in all respects, and the work situation should not compromise human capabilities and limitations.
