Workplace ergonomics

Required by Occupational Health and Safety Act, every employer has to ensure ergonomically fit workplaces for his employees.

Physiological hazards are all those hazards which may damage our musculoskeletal system – for example, physically demanding job, compulsory postures and repetitive motions etc. The main objective to manage physiolocial hazards, is to prevent musculoskeletal disorders. Unfortunately, in our present world, it is common to live a life-style with no physical activity and therefore, musculoskeletal problems are even more crucial. These problems – like neck-ache, shoulder-ache, low-back pain – are the most frequently diagnosed musculoskeletal problems at workplace. Prevention of physiological hazards is closely connected with workplace ergonomics as well as physiotherapy. Both support identifing, analyzing and mitigating the physiological hazards.
