The value of the ergonomics
The prevention of musculoskeletal disorders is directly linked to a correct design of working space and workstation the use of quality tools and optimised work techniques, an appropriate maintenance of spaces and tools and a good work organisation.
The objective of a good design is to create activities that allow workers to carry out their work with high productivity and quality, develop their capacities and enjoy a high degree of well-being (UNE EN 614-2).
