Workstation Ergonomics

The IST can provide ergonomists specialised in workstation analysis and improvement. The Institute intervenes, upon request, in different sectors of activity, on the following aspects:

  • Supporting organisations attempting to integrate and implement all the legal aspects surrounding occupational health and safety: MSST - the occupational physician and safety specialists directive, Swiss Labour Law and other regulations relative to workstations
  • Evaluating ergonomic risk factors: analyses of workstations, gestures and postures, work organisation, as well as environmental conditions (lighting, noise, temperature, etc.)
  • Planning, arranging and designing working environments and tools, and adapting workstations and machinery
  • Raising employees' awareness of the inherent risks involved in their jobs and training them in the best and safest practices for doing them, both at the right times.
