Ergonomics is an applied science which emphasizes the importance of designing workstations (i.e. office furniture or industrial work areas and equipment) so the workstation fits the individual worker. The objective is to "design out" as many ergonomic risk factors as possible in an effort to reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSD). Ergonomics is also referred to as Human Factors.
