The Use of Ergonomics to Streamline Processe


At present, it is demanded more and more that the working conditions meet ergonomic principles. Most people have a sedentary job, and many of us spend many hours at the computer. This situation is related to the development of science and technology, and causes number of complications if the ergonomic principles are not observed. Research Institute of labour safety v.v.i. is engaged in examination, validation and application of methods of prevention of risks caused by work activities and endangering human health and the environment. This issue has already been addressed also in an engineering plant.
