Ergonomics is one of the arguments that companies use to move one step forward in today's increasingly dynamic competitive environment. Increased employee satisfaction in terms of effective and successful management provides a significant advantage to companies. Reducing the risk of injuries, reducing work accidents, optimizing the working environment is an area of interest for ergonomics.

Ergonomics, also known as the human factor, is a scientific discipline that recognizes products, wants to increase human interaction with equipment, environments and systems. Businesses need to think about human health and anthropometry. For this reason, a variety of engineering and design methods are used for necessary improvements, considering the biology, health, safety and psychology of the employees. In this study, the textile sector in which the human factor in production is heavily used has been examined in terms of ergonomics and movement economics. How are the working conditions of the workers in the production plant researched and how do the employees carry the heavy objects? How does he remove it? Are heavy and frequent re-jobs performed in accordance with ergonomics principles? How are long-term risky postures done? How airy, how little noisy, how well illuminated is the workplace in terms of environmental conditions? Were asked to answer basic questions such as. These questions were sought in the light of the ergonomics principles of the company for a healthier way of production for the company and these recommendations were submitted as a result of the study.
