Abstract

Ergonomics in the work environment represents an important area since the non-compliance with it negatively affects people’s health. To create sustainable working conditions for employees in the future, today’s students – future managers, logistics specialists, and entrepreneurs need to be approached. The paper presents pilot research oriented towards the awareness of ergonomics and its merit in relation to health and productivity while studying and performing sitting work tasks. The meaning of this was raised by the Covid-19 pandemic impacts and an increase in the home office and distant studying. Also, the paper combines arguments from secondary data sources with obtained primary data. The main goal was to gather evidence justifying active engagement of logistics managers in ergonomics, as well as setting logistics processes respecting ergonomics requirements. The main findings underline the need for logistics specialists and employees themselves to be aware of ergonomics principles so that human well-being can be sustainably achieved.
