European Month of Ergonomics 2009 - Risk Assessment and Ergonomics

Solutions, that respect human characteristics – opportunities and constraints – and that utilize human capability comprehensively, can stimulate the worker to improve continuously her or his own work and can be identified through ergonomics.
