Ergonomics is the scientific discipline of designing according to human need. Ergonomics at the workplace makes sure that every individual has a comfortable and efficient work position, which allows for movement as appropriate. This can help prevent muscular and skeletal problems, which are a substantial drain to society costing billions of pounds every year. A large amount of these problems and this cost is from bad workplace ergonomics.
