Employee ergonomics is defined as the applied science of equipment design for the workplace, which is intended to maximize productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. This means fitting the job to the people assigned with the task through the design and adjustment of equipment and procedures. Ergonomics may also be referred to as biotechnology, human engineering, or human factors engineering. Environmental Health and Safety staff are available upon request to provide ergonomic guidance and assessment work spaces.
