What are work-related musculoskeletal injuries? (WRMIs)
MWRIs affect the soft tissue of the body, such as the muscles, the tendons that connect muscles to bones, ligaments that connect bone to bone, nerves and blood vessels.

Why is ergonomics important?
Making your work environment as comfortable as possible is a key factor in productivity at work. However, it shouldn’t require an illness or injury to occur in order for adequate ergonomics in the workplace to be considered. Preventing WRMI and pain from developing in the first place is an even bigger motivation to make sure you are comfortable in your workspace and enjoying optimal productivity and enjoyment of your work.

What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics can be defined simply as the study of work. More specifically, ergonomics is the science of designing the job to fit the worker, rather than physically forcing the worker’s body to fit the job. Adapting tasks, work-stations, tools, and equipment to fit the worker can help reduce physical stress on a worker’s body and eliminate many potentially serious, disabling work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs).

Ergonomics draws on a number of scientific disciplines, including physiology, biomechanics, psychology, anthropometry, industrial hygiene and kinesiology.
