Ergonomics hazards in the workplace can be caused by frequent lifting, poor posture, an ill-adjusted workstation and chairs, awkward repetitive movements, vibrations, and frequent use of too much force. In an industrial workplace, the tools that are used vary by size shape, weight and power source. They can cause side effects including numbness, tingling, aching, stiffness, neck and back pain, blurred vision and headache. Over time, ergonomic injuries result in musculoskeletal disorders such as herniated discs and carpal tunnel syndrome. Ergonomic protection safety equipment reduces the number of injuries in the workplace that are caused by vibration and repetitive actions.
