Factory work takes all shapes and sizes, and preparing an ergonomic workplace can be a challenge of great complexity. Activities in factories are usually highly diversified, which makes applying accessible, uniform solutions that much harder. To reduce the risks to worker health and safety, it is essential to act at the source. This might involve rearranging work stations, switching tools and specialized equipment or even reorganizing work. By reducing workers’ exposure to the wide-ranging risk factors of factory work, the potential for injury is reduced and working conditions improved.
