For office safety, ergonomics refers to preparing the workspace an employee uses on a daily basis in such a way that increases both comfort and productivity. Sometimes a worker may not realize their workspace is not ergonomic in a particular way until their body lets them know with early warning signs. It’s important to be able to recognize these common ergonomic symptoms as soon as possible so there is opportunity to prevent future injury.
