Abstract

A STUDY TO IDENTIFY THE IMPACT OF WORK STATION LAYOUT ON POSTURE

Dr. Tulika Khare*

ABSTRACT

Ergonomics deals with the relationship between man, the machine made by man and the environment which man inhibits. The objectives of these machines are to create an environment in which man- machine system becomes more efficient and injurious effects of machinery on man are avoided. One of the major injurious effects on office workers ergonomically is the musculoskeletal disorders. Thus a need was felt to study the ergonomics in office environment. For this study 100 Rashtrasant Tukadoji Maharaj Nagpur University’s office workers were selected as samples. A pre coded interview schedule was prepared for the survey. Simple random sampling without replacement was done for the survey. Out of the all respondents, 86 percent of the office workers spent more than 6 hours on their workstations every day. It was found that majorly the workstation layout affected the upper body structure of the office workers. An ergonomically wrong workstation layout affects the physiology and psychology of the respondents. Irritation and dissatisfaction was observed in many respondents.

Keywords: Ergonomics, Musculoskeletal disorders, man-machine-environment system, awkward posture, workstation layout.
