"The Board of Certification in Professional Ergonomics, established in 1990, defines ergonomics as a body of knowledge about human abilities, human limitations, and other human characteristics that are relevant to design.... Industrial ergonomics can be defined more specifically as the application of relevant areas of the life sciences, physical sciences, and engineering to the work system consisting of the interactions between workers and their occupations, tools and equipment, and working environment such as atmosphere, heat, light, vibration, and sound." — Occupational Health & Safety, Joseph LaDou, NSC Pub.
