Workplace Ergonomics

The word Ergonomic has been derived from two Greek words, ‘ergon’ meaning work, and ‘nomoi’ meaning natural laws. When combined, they create a word meaning the science of work and a person’s relationship to that work.

Ergonomics is primarily the science of fitting the work to the user instead of forcing the user to fit in the work. It is defined as the study of how people work in their environment.

The applied science of equipment design, as for the workplace, is intended to maximise productivity by reducing operator fatigue and discomfort. It is also referred to as biotechnology, human engineering, human factors engineering.

With our rich expertise in the human resources and strong knowledge archive, we provide customised solutions  across the multiple spheres of healthcare and workplace design analysis in workplace ergonomics through Audit and assurance, Advisory and Consulting, Research and Study, Training and Capacity building.
