Expertise in Action

Ergonomics (or human factors) is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance.

Practitioners of ergonomics and ergonomists contribute to the design and evaluation of tasks, jobs, products, environments and systems in order to make them compatible with the needs, abilities and limitations of people.

Ergonomics helps harmonize things that interact with people in terms of people’s needs, abilities and limitations.

The three main areas of ergonomics are:

  • Physical Ergonomics
  • Cognitive Ergonomics
  • Organizational Ergonomics
