Tomorrow I have a meeting with the owner of Vitnik a well known sportswear manufacturer here in Argentina. For my Ergonomy class we must report upon our observations at a clothing factory. It is very interesting but very detailed work. We are to find areas where adjustments could be made to improve the quality of the work area for the laborers. In turn this meant to increase productivity by making the workplace more appealing and comfortable for the laborers. The main problem that clothing factory workers develop are problems in the articulations due to repetitive movement on the assembly line. Ergonomy is the science developed to avoid this and other health problems. All in the interest of creating a humane and productive factory.
