Abstract

The purpose of this paper is to show that the conjunction of participatory ergonomics and outside consulting can be the link among professionals from different areas. This association can result in improvements in the workplace as well as in the production process. Employing participatory ergonomics, an intervention described in the present study reduced the risk of musculoskeletal disorders and increased productivity while also allowing great rest time through the development and deployment of auxiliary devices and job redesign for the gathering of begonia seedlings.
