Ergonomics focuses on the interactions between employees and their working conditions. It looks at achieving a balance between the requirements of the employees' work and the efficiency of the employer.
This is also the focus of the various courses and workshops that ÖKK offers in conjunction with external partners. A workplace consultation, for example, involves evaluating factors such as the physical demands placed on employees, their direct working environment and the working organisation.
The aim of a workplace consultation is to set up the workplace in line with employees' ergonomic needs.
