Ergonomics via distance learning

 

This program of ergonomics studies the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them. Ergonomics aims to minimize risk of injury or harm and optimize wellness. As technologies change, so too does the need to ensure that the tools we access for work, rest and play are designed for our body’s requirements and comfort. Ergonomics applies to the design of anything that involves people, workspaces, sports and leisure, health and safety.
