Myth #5: Ergonomics Only Helps With Carpal Tunnel Syndrome


When hearing the term “ergonomics” some individuals might automatically associate the idea with simply avoiding Carpal Tunnel Syndrome and other repetitive stress injuries.

However, there is much more to ergonomics than just eliminating the risk of CTS.

While avoiding CTS and other serious workplace injuries is certainly a key component of ergonomic design, there are other tremendous benefits to upgrading your home, business, education or medical office to reflect ergonomic principles.

Injuries Ergonomics Helps Avoid

According to a recent study, most Americans between the ages of 22 and 65 spend 40 to 50 percent of their waking hours at work. Clearly, this is a significant amount of time, and every year millions of Americans suffer injuries in their workplace. However, implementing more ergonomic principles can help to avoid many of these common injuries.

Ergonomics Not Only Avoid Injuries, But Boosts Productivity and Morale

Of course, avoiding workplace injuries is not the only benefit associated with an increased awareness of ergonomics in the workplace. Numerous studies suggest that by focusing on making their employees more comfortable, efficient and safe, companies stand to gain great return in employee satisfaction and productivity. And, in most cases, these gains also translate in to profit gains as well. In fact, according the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, companies receive $3 or more for every $1 spent on improving office ergonomics and workplace safety.
