What are industrial jobs?
Indispensable even in times of automation: industrial jobs
In the course of an ongoing development towards Industry 4.0, more and more work processes are being automated. Nevertheless, there remains a certain range of tasks that still have to be performed manually. In the context of industrial workplaces, ergonomics therefore matters in order to reduce work-related harm. In addition, ergonomically designed workstations increase production efficiency and reduce downtime.
An industrial workstation that meets system ergonomic requirements is based on the following aspects:
- Work table
- Work chair
- Workplace mat
- Tool/operating elements
Each of these factors must be ergonomically designed in its own right, for example through the adjustability of the desk or intuitive handling of the controls. This prevents incorrect posture and excessive stress on isolated areas of the body, which in turn ensures the user's performance.
