Ergonomics is the study or addressing of human interaction with mechanical environment. Interaction may be in the form of a task or use of equipment that is present at work. Physical ergonomics addresses the designs of equipment used in a task and considers the type of work being performed and its impact on the worker. Repetitive tasks can have serious long and short term impact on the health of the worker and ergonomics is central to addressing the problem. Evaluation of the the workers duties and tasks can identify those areas which need ergonomic devices.
