About this Unit
Ergonomics is the study of the interaction between people, their environments, and their objects. A sound understanding of the principles of ergonomics allows a designer to develop products, systems and environments with optimum product usability and end user safety. In this unit, students are introduced to modelling workshop procedures and undertake their own ergonomic study. Students then build and test a hand-held scale product, and integrate user feedback into their redesign.

Special Requirements - Essential Equipment
Online work safety module must have been completed prior to workshop space use. Specific requirements regarding machine use may require student safety inductions per apparatus i.e. drill, sander.
