WORKPLACE ERGONOMICS FOR PEOPLE WITH DISABILITIES

Emil Constantin LOGHIN, Adela FLOREA, Irina IONESCU

Abstract


The physical, sensory and mental faculties vary from one person to another. Some differences can be from birth or as a result of accidents or disease. At young population level, there are special schools for people with disabilities, based on an adequate educational and therapeutic rehabilitation process. In the clothing field, in order to increase the efficiency of the practical activity of those pupils, the quality of the workplace design consists mainly of the maximisation of the interface operator – machine. The papers objectives are ergonomic configuration of the workplace, correlated with the anatomic particularities of the users. The case study was developed in a Romanian school workshop for pupils with disabilities; the results can be extended in clothing companies so that people with disabilities are employed.
