What is Applied Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is an improvement or adaptation of a work environment or tools used by the employee. The improvement is based on the physiological, psychological and social aspects of the work. The health of workers is paramount in companies today simply because health means efficiency. This is why ergonomics at work has become a major objective for companies across the world.
Problems Related to a Non-Ergonomic Work Environment
Several missions are entrusted to the operator during a working day. These tasks will involve specific postures in order to carry out work. Whether it is a physical effort on a workstation in a factory or a mental effort through work on computers in offices, we find the same health problems. Health and well-being at work is a real concern for companies. However, we can see that operators are particularly suffering more and more from Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD), which are diseases caused by working conditions that inflict pain on the operator and subsequently reduce his performance at work.
Disability caused by MSD is typically temporary, but damage done to the body can become irreversible. In economic terms, MSDs are a handicap for companies. In 2017, they accounted for more than 87% of occupational illnesses resulting in a work stoppage or financial compensation due to sequelae. The objective of ergonomics at work is therefore to reduce MSD and accidents at work, in order to preserve the health and efficiency of employees.
Ergonomics Reduce Occupational Hazards
SESA SYSTEMS has designed various ergonomic products to optimize performance and reduce MSD at work. We offer modular workstations, ergonomic chairs and stools, anti-fatigue mats, height-adjustable electric desks. SESA SYSTEMS has added to these innovations to expand its range of electric workstations and height-adjustable desks. The aim of these ergonomic designs is to improve the working conditions and productivity of operators by allowing them to adapt the height of their workstations according to the tasks performed. This allows them to move into seated, standing or sit-standing positions with minimal demand put on the body. The new sitting/standing workstations for the workshops allow an adapted working height and an appropriate provision of tools and components thanks to numerous compatible accessories.
