Ergonomics ensures that workplaces and working conditions are properly adapted to human characteristics and needs so as to prevent injury. To achieve this aim, several workplace factors have to be harmonised - the equipment, the organisation and the environment.
The ergonomics facility has several example workstations where seminar participants can learn about these aspects through hands-on experience. They can analyse, assess and optimise the workstations on the basis of ergonomic principles. The seminars also provide an opportunity for participants facing workplace-design issues in their own companies to devise solutions in true-to-life conditions and discuss them with others.
