Ergonomics is defined as the study of the design of a workplace, equipment, machine, tool, product, environment, and system which takes into consideration human being's physical, physiological, biomechanical, and psychological capabilities and optimizes the effectiveness and productivity of work systems while assuring the safety, health, and well-being of the workers.The goal of ergonomics is to fit the task to the individual, not the individual to the task. Practicing good ergonomics achieves increased productivity, improved health and safety of workers, higher job satisfaction and better compliance with government regulations.

Division of Ergonomics in Department of Occupational Health Engineering was founded in 2010 for the purposes of decreasing risk of injury/illness at workplaces, enhancing worker productivity and improving quality of work life and also providing excellent training for ergonomists.Ergonomicsis a multidisciplinary field which involves related fields such as Occupational and Environmental Health, Industrial Engineering, Biomedical Engineering and Physical Therapy.In the next 10 years, presentation of the ergonomic courses in our country will be placed in same position of the known ones in this area, regarding to educational standards, research production and providing of technical services.
