Agriculture is one of the most hazardous sectors in both developing and developed countries. Increasing attention is being given to applying practical actions in rural and agricultural settings to reduce work-related accidents and diseases, improve living conditions and increase productivity. Reports from many countries have shown the feasibility and effectiveness of ergonomic innovations that have improved working and living conditions in rural and agricultural settings. Building on these good examples, this manual is intended to present practical and concrete guidance on easy-to-implement ergonomic improvements, most particularly in developing countries.

The result of long-term collaboration between the ILO and the International Ergonomics Association, the manual compiles 100 illustrated examples of practical ergonomic improvements that can be achieved at low or no cost. The checkpoints each describe an action, indicate why it is necessary and how to carry it out, and provide further hints and points to remember. They focus on ergonomically designed tools and on best techniques for handling materials and arranging workstations, physical environments, welfare facilities, teamwork methods and community cooperation. This invaluable training tool is designed for all those concerned with creating a better workplace in agriculture and rural settings: employers, supervisors, workers, inspectors, safety and health personnel, trainers and educators, extension workers, engineers, ergonomists and designers.
