Work Environment

Ergonomists encounter various working conditions, depending on specific duties and responsibilities. An ergonomist may work in a typical office environment, with computer and data processing equipment close at hand. The ergonomist may also work in a factory, investigating production problems. Usually, ergonomists do both: They work in an office setting and make frequent visits to a factory or other location to work out particular production issues. Although the majority of the work is not strenuous, ergonomists may occasionally assemble or revamp machinery or work processes. They also spend much of their time explaining procedures and techniques to their clients.
