Based on the response to this centre, we will also plan to open similar centers in other cities in India over the next 2-3 years.”
Ergonomics is the study of how to improve efficiency and comfort at workplace. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting, etc need to be assessed while creating a workspace. A sound understanding of ergonomics can prevent most workplace injuries by adjusting tools to the user, putting an emphasis on proper posture to reduce the impact of repetitive movements.
