Abstract

South African organisations need to realise that ergonomics is not another marketing tool but a value-added activity.


Ergonomics will not solve all the problems at work but will establish intervention programmes to implement and support any technological or system changes. Various definitions or explanations of ergonomics exist. The most common among them are :
  1. the relationship between the employee, the task and the working environment
  2. human factor science or engineering
  3. the effective safe, healthy and environmental friendly interaction between man, machine and task.
