The term ergonomics comes from the Greek syllables “ERGON” which means “WORK”, AND “NOMOS” which means “LAWS”, first appeared in a Polish article published in 1857. The study of human factors did not gain much attention until World War 11. Accidents with military equipments were often blamed on human errors, but the investigations revealed that some were caused by poorly designed controls. The modern discipline ergonomics was born in United Kingdom on July 12, 1949, at a meeting of those interested in human work problems in the British navy. At another meeting held on February, 16, 1950, the term ergonomics was formally adopted for this growing discipline.

Today in the United States, ergonomics professionals belong to Human Factors and Ergonomics Society (HFES), an organization with over 5000 members interested in topics ranging from aging to aerospace to computers. Ergonomic design make consumer products safer, easier to use, and more reliable.
“Ergonomics or human factors are the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system.” i.e. it deals with the scientific study of the relationship between the humans and its environment. It is “fitting a job to a worker.”
