Ergonomics I

1. Compare the 2 different workplaces, state your observations
The workplace on the left is not as tidy than the workplace on the right as it is very cluttered and messy and he had trouble looking for his things and there was once he had to put his keyboard on top of his mug which had been spilt 
The user on the left also appears to be uncomfortable because of his fidgeting.
The workplace on the left do not have features that are friendly as the one on the right. The workplace on the right has features like more comfortable chairs,better lamps and other gadgets which are friendly to the people and it may also improve the productivity of the people.

2. Which workplace is preferred? State with reasons why one workplace is preferred over the other.
The workplace on the right is preferred. The workplace should help to reduce the stress, increase the comfort of the  user, 

3. What are the considerations that should be taken into account when designing a workplace that is suitable for the user?

4. Why do you think that Ergonomics is important when designing?
