KTC Safety provide an Ergonomic Consultation Service. Ergonomics is the interaction concerning humans to the design of objects, equipment and environment. Ergonomics comes into everything which involves people. Work systems, sports and leisure, Health and Safety should all embody ergonomic principles if well designed.
We believe Ergonomics has a wide application to everyday situations, but there are even more significant implications for efficiency, productivity, Safety and Health in work settings.
Designing equipment and work arrangements in order to improve work posture will ease the load on the body. This will lead to a reduction in instances of repetitive strain injury/work related upper limb disorder.
Designing work environments, including lighting and heating, to suit the needs of the users and the tasks performed. Ergonomics should be considered when a new workplace is being designed and when new equipment is being selected or installed and when jobs and procedures are being considered.
