What is Ergonomy ?

Ergonomy comes from the Greek words ergon and nomos meaning work and law. Ergonomy is the science pertaining to how to adapt work environment to the worker or adapting products to their user. This science studies a person, their environment and work tasks or more precisely the different movements of a person performing work tasks so as to insure they are being performed in an optimal manner. Ergonomy aims to render equipment and work methods optimal and promote health and safety. An ergonomic tool or work method is thus adapted to the person using the tool or performing the task.

Although Ergonomy only became a discipline in the 20th century so to speak of, man has always paid attention to health at their workplace and adapted their methods for as long as man has been working. The inventor Leonardo Da Vinci already created during the Renaissance, equipment allowing man to exceed their limits during the execution of certain tasks, in particular when lifting or carrying heavy loads.

Teleconsultation in ergonomy

Many workers are now called upon to work from home in order to comply with the new social distancing measures. Unfortunately, many do not have access to an ergonomically adequate workspace. In the medium to long term, this is likely to cause a great deal of discomfort.

The Clinique GO team is proud to offer you its new teleconsultation service in ergonomy. Thanks to the remote intervention of our ergonomist, you will get advice on how to best design your workspace at home, allowing you to adopt habits that are important to your well-being at work. The goal of this service is to prevent the discomfort resulting from a non-ergonomic workstation from becoming a real source of pain.
