Ergonomics (or human factors) is the application of scientific information concerning humans to the design of objects, systems and environment for human use. Ergonomics is commonly thought of as how companies design tasks and work areas to maximize the efficiency and quality of their employees’ work. However, ergonomics comes into everything which involves people.
Ergonomics is matching the job to the worker and product to the user. Ergonomics and human factors are often used interchangeably in workplaces. Both describe the interaction between the worker and the job demands. The difference between them is ergonomics focuses on how work affects workers, and human factors emphasizes designs that reduce the potential for human error.
Ergonomic hazards refer to workplace conditions that pose the risk of injury to the musculoskeletal system of the worker. Examples of musculoskeletal injuries include tennis elbow (an inflammation of a tendon in the elbow) and carpal tunnel syndrome (a condition affecting the hand and wrist).
Ergonomic hazards include repetitive and forceful movements, vibration, temperature extremes, and awkward postures that arise from improper work methods and improperly designed workstations, tools, and equipment. (source: CCHST)
The musculoskeletal troubles (MST) has major effect on the health in industrial countries. Since 1995, inferior and superior back MST have represented annually 37% of the compensation file and 46% of absentee du to injuries or professional sickness. Financial and human cost related to TMS are enormous. Each year, 500 million dollars is paid by the CSST in indemnity to workers having musculoskeletal internal injury. That amount doesn’t take care of the indirect cost which could double this number. This situation is also alarming in Europe and United States. In accordance with the Working statistic office, in United States the TMS were responsible of 33% of day out (absenteeism) du to injuries or professional sickness. In Europe, The EUROGIP report highlight the constant evolution of the number of workers having to deal with TMS. In regard to 1999 investigation of the European foundation for the improvement of the workplace conditions, MST represented more than 53% of the total professional sickness in the UE 15. The TMS are the first cause of absenteeism (49.9% of all absentee of more than 3 days) and cause more than 60% of permanent incapability to work. All economical sectors of industrial countries are concerned such as manufactures, alimentary sector, buildings and services. Up to now, all prevention action attempted in North America and Europe have failed in resolving this curse.
In those conditions, the intervention to reduce TMS risk can not goes without verifying all problematic encounters in the business. The prevention of MST have to positioned on production operation and organisational stakes to have durable effect. It has to integrate to all changes as much in the conception of the workplace and equipment as in the organisation system introduction (Lean production) or in allowing all the integration of a specific type of population such as young, old or immigrant.
