Agriculture is one of the most hazardous sectors in both developing and developed countries. The result of long-term collaboration between the ILO and the International Ergonomics Association, this manual is intended to present practical and concrete guidance on easy-to-implement ergonomic improvements, most particularly in developing countries. It compiles 100 illustrated examples of practical ergonomic improvements that can be achieved at low or no cost.
