Ergonomics Assessments

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well being and overall system performance.

Ergonomics is concerned with the fit between the user, equipment and their environments. Factors that are considered include the user's capabilities and limitations in seeking to ensure that tasks, functions, information and the environment suit each user.

It is critical that an assessment of the fit between a person  and the used technology is conducted. This is achieved by consideration of the job activity being done and the demands on the user, the equipment used (e.g., its size, shape, and how appropriate it for the task) and the information used (e.g., how it is presented, accessed and changed). We will assist you with the evaluation of workplace design, layout and work heights, task and job analysis and vehicle cabin assessments.
