Ergonomic Diagnosis of a Computer Workstation

Open access


The article presents the results of research carried out as a part of a project aimed at integrated ergonomic diagnosis of the work environment in terms of improvement of technical and psychosocial conditions. The research carried out so far included small and medium-sized enterprises located in the Śląskie Voivodeship. The tests included blue-collar workers as well as administrative (white-collar) workers. Ergonomic diagnosis was carried out by direct observation of employees at the workplace using tools such as the Ergonomic Control Test CET II and the Dortmund list. This article presents the results of ergonomic analysis at a workstation with a computer.
