Ergonomics is the science and practice of designing a person’s surroundings and environment to fit their capabilities. It looks at how equipment they use and objects around them aid and limit them to complete their job, in the sense of a work environment. 

The aim is to optimise the interaction between people and their surroundings. Ensuring that workspaces, tools and equipment are designed and arranged in a way that promotes comfort, safety and productivity.

Our ergonomic assessments consider the physical and cognitive abilities of people. As ergonomics aims to minimise the risk of injury, strain and fatigue which is often associated with repetitive and prolonged activities. 

Ergonomics looks at creating a balance between people and their surroundings

Health surveillance

Our team of experts take into account factors such as: 

  • Body posture 
  • Movements 
  • Vision 
  • Stress 
  • Workload 
  • Work equipment 
  • Working hours


There are numerous businesses and industries where ergonomics plays an important role. For example, in an office environment, ergonomic principles guide the design of adjustable chairs, desks, and computer workstations. All aimed to enhance posture and prevent musculoskeletal disorders for employees. 

Similarly, in industrial settings, ergonomics informs the layout of workstations, machinery and tools. With an aim of reducing staring and improving performance.

Ergonomics strives to create a harmonious relationship between humans and their environment. Optimising both well-being and productivity by prioritising the comfort, safety and efficiency of individuals and improving the efficiency of the business.
