Put your back into it - My brilliant career

Article on the South African Times Live by Margaret Harris on 10 October 2010

It is an interview with Dale Kennedy, an ergonomist and director at consulting firm Ergomax.

I particularly liked Dale's answer to the question "What does an ergonomist do?"

"An ergonomist looks at how working environments affect people. We consider what the human body can and wants to do and design the work environment appropriately to minimise risk exposure, optimise efficiency and maximise profits. Ergonomics marries the occupational health and safety of the workers to the fundamental needs of any business - that of making money."
