What is the aim of ergonomics at work?

That might seem to be an obvious question, certainly for people who deal with ergonomics every day. In a professional context, ergonomics means caring about the well-being of your employees. The aim of ergonomics in the workplace is to prioritise physical and mental health by creating a high-quality, healthy workplace.

Physical ergonomics play a major role (in matters like providing the right office chair), but cognitive and organisational ergonomics are important as well. So ergonomics are a good guideline to help you draw up a strong well-being policy.

Less chance of physical complaints and illness, higher productivity and more happiness at work are just a few of the benefits of an ergonomic workplace.
