Topic Overview: In 14 years, one in five persons will be over the age of 65. The probability that our aging workers will be diagnosed with new diseases that affect their ability to produce and function will increase. This might include workers diagnosed with low vision, fibromyalgia, arthritis, Crohn’s Disease, diabetes, ALS, etc. Inclusion Ergonomics aims to retain the wealth of knowledge possessed by an aging and differently-abled workforce by ergonomically accommodating these individuals. In using inclusive ergonomics, you will be able to attract and retain the best workforce, and design work environments to mitigate or reduce disability, not only within today's workplace, but also in tomorrow's.


  1. Recognize the importance of creating an adjustable work area.
  2. Identify how to accommodate differently-abled workers.
  3. Explain how to reduce barriers to focus on productivity.
