    This document provides ergonomic design guidelines intended to improve quality, performance and safety by reducing fatigue and injury associated with manufacturing systems, including individual and integrated machines and auxiliary components. It is intended to be a resource that can be applied to:

    a) Design or major modification, installation and use of machines and their auxiliary components;

    b) Design of a manufacturing system supporting machines and auxiliary components;

    c) Improve safety, quality and productivity, and reduce errors associated with a manufacturing system.

    Integrating ergonomic concepts early in the design process should maximize the impact and cost effectiveness of ergonomic interventions during the design process. The goal of this document is to provide guidance on the practical application of ergonomic principles in order to avoid work-related injuries and musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), increase productivity, and improve product quality.

    This document is directed towards technicians, engineers, designers, and safety and health practitioners who deal with general ergonomic issues related to machines. It is not intended to replace in-depth analysis by qualified and experienced ergonomists.
