Ergonomics covers all aspects of a job, from the physical stresses it places on joints, muscles, nerves, tendons, bones to environmental factors which can effect hearing, vision, and general comfort and health.

Physical Stress

Physical stress varies from the type of jobs/field you work in. At an office setting, many causes physical stress are such as keyboard, computers and phones. The keyboard causes physical stress on your fingers, wrist, arm and shoulder. The fingers begin to hurt when constantly typing causing for the wrist to constantly move. In the future, this could lead to having carpal tunnel, tendonitis and many back problems.The arm are leaning on the desk moving casuing for the shoulders to become stiff at a position. The computers blur your eyesight from staring at them for too long. Also when answering the phones, you put them in your ear while typing causing a strain on the shoulder and back. Some solutions may be adjusting your chair so the wrist are relaxed, not digging into the keyboard or desk, and adjust the computer monitor so there isnt a glare or high brighntess. Taking short breaks to stand up and walk around helps with posture and to avoid less back problems. 

At a physical demanding job such as construction using any kind of machinery and tools can cause excessive strain on the body especially neck, shoulders, arms and back
