Abstract [en]

Ergonomics has become an effective discipline and a productive field of practice and study for the last two decades with an ever-growing demand. Yet there seems to be a challenge to all concerned at the dawn of the new millennium, to spread ergonomics world-wide and to fill the unfilled gap in knowledge and in practice in different parts of the world. Third world countries have been identified as potential targets. They require critical attention, supportive sources and necessary guidance to spread the knowledge and equally to improve working conditions. This paper considers a methodical approach to introducing ergonomics to Sri Lanka, where ergonomics was hardly known even in the early 90's. This attempt has become a continuous process since 1988, and to date many intervention programmes have been planned and carried out. The paper discusses intervention programmes introducing ergonomics to the educational system and the industrial sector in Sri Lanka.
