Ergonomic Evaluation

Ergonomics evaluates work performance, viewing human and environment as one unit. If the human does not operate smoothly and efficiently with the environment, optimal performance will not be achieved and injuries may result.

Since the human form cannot be redesigned, the environment must be evaluated and altered if necessary to achieve the best fit for the human operator to perform the task involved.
