Low-Cost Ergonomics Improvements

Ergonomic improvements are sustaining and growing action in the place where people are at work. How to support the peoples’ improvement initiative is the real agenda for ergonomics. Ergonomic improvements, which can be done at low-cost, have been playing vital roles to strengthen such peoples’ improvement initiative in different countries and regions (Kogi et al. 1988). Low-cost improvement actions mobilize self-help efforts of workers and managers and cultivate sustaining and growing action. This is why low-cost improvements are essential in ergonomics. Visible achievements are always strong drive force for accelerating the further improvement action.
