Why are we presenting the Special Award Ergonomics?

Whether at school, university or later in professional life - people are continually complaining about back problems and cramps in their hands. Ergonomic products from the paper, office and stationery sector show that this does not have to be the norm. They help to create an environment in which people can concentrate on their work without any worries. Insights-X, in cooperation with the IGR, has created the Special Award Ergonomics in order to raise the awareness of more companies for the topic of ergonomics and to create an incentive for the production of ergonomic products.
