Ergonomics I

1. Compare the 2 different workplaces, state your observations.

The second workplace is more comfortable and simple so the person can work better. If the place is simple, it will be easier for the person to find his things as he may need to findBold certain things to carry out a certain task. If the workplace is more comfortable, the person will also be able to concentrate better on his work. In the video, the person’s chair is not very well designed so he cannot maintain his posture and cannot concentrate on his work. The lighting is also not very good and has a similar bad effect on him.

2. Which workplace is preferred? State with reasons why one workplace is preferred over the other.

The second workplace. People will want to work in a more comfortable workplace as it will mean reduced stress and he will be more happy working as he will often have to sit at the workplace which can dramatically affect the person’s mood. The tidy work place is very well organised. There are a lot of free space on the desk top. The guy had no trouble working. With proper adjustable lighting, monitor screen and chair. The working environment is ideal. The guy is able to work comfortably. The specially designed chair is more ergonomic than normal ones as it can accommodate to the user’s desired comfort.

3. What are the considerations that should be taken into account when designing a workplace that is suitable for the user?

Lighting, desk space, the design of the chair, the position of the computer, a room specially designed for its purpose.
