What are the Ergonomic Risks that can Cause Injury to the Body?

The factors at your workplace which may harm the musculoskeletal system of the body are known as Ergonomic Hazards. These are often difficult to detect, but easier to address. Following are the Top 5 Ergonomic hazards at Workplace:

  1. Improper Chairs/ Workstations: With so much work on computers these days- this is a top contributor.

  2. Improper lifting of weights due to lack of tools or skill.

  3. Repetitive to and fro movements due to poor job planning.

  4. Assuming poor posture due to reaching items/ machines for work.

  5. Noise: As per OSHA health and safety standards, noise exposure at or above an 8-hour time-weighted average of 85 decibels is classified as an ergonomic risk.

Careful planning of Workplace layout and job itinerary often eliminates these hazards.
