Ergonomics

Did you know that the Department of Labour is in the process of developing an Ergonomics Regulation? These Regulations will focus on a programme approach to manage physical and cognitive ergonomics in the workplace.

What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the fundamental 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 optimise human well-being and overall system performance.

The new regulations shall apply to: -

  • Employers or self-employed persons who carries out work at a workplace which may expose any person to physical or cognitive risk factors in that workplace; and
  • A person who designs, manufactures, erects, installs or supplies machinery, equipment or articles for use at work.

For input or information on the Ergonomics Regulation, please contact the SAFCEC SHERQ department.
