    Workplace ergonomics doesn’t have to be as difficult or complicated as brain surgery. The ergonomic principles included in this article are mostly common sense – it’s the practical, day-to-day application of these principles that is challenging for many companies.

    Based on this understanding, the Ergonomics chapter in the 4th edition of the ILO Encyclopaedia covers the different clusters of knowledge and experiences oriented toward worker characteristics and capabilities, and aimed at an optimum use of the resource “human work” by making work more “ergonomic”, that is, more humane. Work Design is a single source for ergonomics, work design, and work measurement. Its engineering orientation equips readers with practical design information and procedures; its explicit organization, conversational style, and clear explanations make it easy to read and understand.

    A proactive approach to Ergonomics will ensure that: • Designers will receive training in ergonomics and have appropriate information and guidelines regarding risk reduction • Decision-makers planning new work processes should have knowledge of Ergonomics principles that contribute to the reduction or elimination of risk. The Rules of Work: A Practical Engineering Guide to Ergonomics (Second Edition, Taylor & Francis, ) A down-to-earth basic text on industrial ergonomics for production engineers and safety and health professionals.
