The COVID-19 pandemic is a disaster all over the world. During this global calamity, the health and safety of workers in the workplace should be considered. Occupational exposure to pathogens is an inherent risk factor of health care workplaces [1]. During the pandemic, the medical staff of hospitals on the frontlines of medical services take the necessary measures to identify patients, isolate them and treat them [2]. The health and safety of these individuals can be enhanced by ergonomics through the redesign and re-evaluation of tasks, environments, and systems. Ergonomics or human factors is “the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimize human well-being and overall system performance” (IEA Council, 2014).
