Best Practice: Ergonomics

Are You Sitting Comfortably?

The science of ergonomics draws upon human biology, psychology, engineering and design to create environments in which people are able to work better and have a lower chance of injuring themselves.

Using the same techniques, driver ergonomics relates to the space within a vehicle and to the different factors which can affect a driver’s comfort. In particular, driver ergonomics focuses on ways of reducing back injuries through poor posture.
