Abstract [en]

This book chapter presents an overview of the relationship between ergonomics and quality. It also proposes a framework to integrate ergonomics concepts with quality concepts. The literature reviewed confirms that there is a strong mutual relationship between ergonomics and quality, and that ergonomics deficiencies lead to quality deficiencies. Further, the implementation of quality improvements often lead to better work conditions and better ergonomics. There are many compatibilities and similarities between the two knowledge fields. The framework describes how of quality and ergonomics concepts may be complementary or contradictory, and offers a new perspective for quality and ergonomics practitioners to integrate ergonomics with an organisation’s quality functions.
