Ergonomics relates to how people interact with machines. A workplace that's designed to suit employees' needs and capabilities allows them to operate at peak productivity. While it's sometimes impossible to make a workplace ergonomically perfect, you can plan and design a safe, comfortable workstation.
To evaluate the workspace you currently provide for your employees, and their work habits, rate each of the following areas on a 1 to 10 scale (1 = never; 5= half the time; 10 = always) and enter the number in the box provided.
If your total score is 70 or above, your workplace is in good shape. If your score is below 70, pay more attention to ergonomics in order to keep employees healthy and productive.
