Ergonomics in the workplace aims to reduce the risk of Musculoskeletal Discomfort and Disorders amongst workers. Ergonomic injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, and back injuries are often the leading source of lost time and workers compensation costs office, manufacturing and healthcare facilities in the U.S. Factors such as posture, repetition and force impact comfort and risk. A lack of recognition of early warning signs and employee discomfort may also increase risks for Musculoskeletal Disorders amongst workers.
