Ergonomic adaptation of office and industrial workstations for disabled workers


Ergonomics applied to the integration or reintegration of disabled people into sheltered workshops and ordinary employment implies the selection and/or the accommodation of workstations suited to the characteristics of the workers. The approach of the institute based on analysing work demands and worker capacities and comparing them with one another to propose adaptive measures in order to overcome mismatches. The aims of the project were the development of a database with recommendations concerning workplace adaptations, and the analysis of several workstations occupied by disabled people to enable relevant adaptations to be made.
