Project objectives

The ERGO WORK project was a collaboration of academic and business organisations in 6 countries, to understand the barriers that disabled people face in the EU workplace and to tackle some of these through improved workplace Ergonomics. The project aims to develop Ergonomics training modules that focus on the needs of disabled people in the workplace and enable future ergonomists to design truly inclusive workplaces that meet the needs of employees and employers. The new modules will be piloted with industrial partners and introduced into curriculum teaching in Slovenia and Poland.
