Ergonomics is the scientific discipline aimed at the fundamental understanding of the interactions between human beings and the other components of a system to improve its overall efficiency and ensure the well-being of the people who use them. Ergonomists contribute to both the design and evaluation of these systems to make them compatible with individuals' needs, abilities, and limitations.

Situations justifying an ergonomic intervention

Various indicators may indicate that your workplace could benefit from the services of an ergonomist. Here are some examples of problematic situations where the contribution of an ergonomist would be beneficial :

  • Employees in your workplace or work areas are struggling with musculoskeletal disorders (MSD), such as tendonitis, back injuries, muscle pain, etc.;
  • Accidents (e.g., falls, slips, etc.) or injuries (e.g., cuts, bruises, etc.) have occurred, and you want to improve the health and safety of your employees;
  • You see high rates of general absenteeism or employee turnover;
  • Many mistakes are made, or tasks must be frequently started anew due to insufficient quality.
  • With the health and safety regime changes, Intergo can help you complete your prevention program and identify risks and solutions. Indeed, since April 6, 2022, the CNESST has been asking all companies that do not already have a prevention program to implement an interim prevention and participation regime.
