The article discusses the importance of employee engagement for organizational and business performance through the prism of ergonomics. The issues that are discussed in this paper comprise the modest contribution that ergonomics as a discipline has made. The relevance of workplace health and ergonomics work relate with that of participation, safety culture and further implications for participatory ergonomics approaches. Based on recently published conceptual framework that recognises the dynamic and multi-dimensional nature of safety culture, the paper highlights the due significance demanded by ergonomics and that which is equally ignored by top management. The paper concludes by considering the much needed empirical survey on this issue in almost all industries and prompt action being taken to implement it. Also, the paper gives a glimpse of various approaches for an empirical study, within an organisation which is noted as important to the success of ergonomics projects.
