ergonomics and Safety

Manufacturing ergonomics and safety

Plant floors and assembly lines are inherently dangerous; there’s no denying that. Working with tools big and small has its risks.

Little is more important in operations than manufacturing ergonomics and safety. This element is the key to unlocking other important elements, such as product quality, productivity, lower operational costs, and more. Safety and ergonomics are not things we take lightly here at Atlas Copco. 


We started our manufacturing ergonomics program in the 1950's. Today, we have a department of dedicated designers working with our ergonomic experts in our product development. At Atlas Copco, we understand the importance of ergonomics and safety and how they are interconnected. In order to have a safe assembly line, you must have effective ergonomics in every aspect of your production. All of our products have been created with the best ergonomic and safety practices in mind.

Our commitment to ergonomics

Our expert team of Tool Engineers and Developers here at Atlas Copco is dedicated to keeping our customers safe and happy in the long run. Every tool and solution created in our facilities is developed with ergonomics in mind because we know and understand that productivity and quality lag when engineers are at risk of injury.
