What is ergonomics?Ergonomics is a type of science that's all about arranging and designing stuff that people use properly so that we could feel much more comfortable and safe to enhance productivity.


Ergonomics originated in World War 2 when scientists designed more complicated and new improved systems. After they designed it, they didn't pay attention to the people using it, this leads to fatigue, discomfort, or pain to workers and soldiers.
