Dear Sir

RE: Research Proposal: Ergonomics and Productivity

I am currently with …………..where I am a sales rep. I have special interest in the relationship between dust levels and productivity; due to my background in Industrial Psychology I have noted a link between the decrease in productivity in the company and the ergonomic state of the company. I attach a proposal for further research in this field.

The reason for approaching you is because I have noticed a lack of motivation from my fellow employees, which is ultimately related to that of performance and productivity of the company as a whole.

It, therefore, seems appropriate to propose a research project designed to test whether ergonomics is related to low productivity.

I hope to hear from you soon.

Yours sincerely

By allowing the work environment to suit the needs of the employees, we are able to create an environment for higher performance and productivity.

Although research of this kind has been explored in many organisations, in South Africa ergonomics are often ignored. Due to this, organisations are losing large...
