Background: Educational environment is a major factor for teacher and student’s health, comfort and academic performance. Nowadays, technology improvement in classroom environment has exposed the users to ergonomics risk factors. The aim of this study was to assess the ergonomics of computer lab from student and expert’s point of view.
Methods: This analytic descriptive cross sectional study was conducted in the University of Social Welfare and Rehabilitation Sciences in 2016. Noise, lightening status, classroom environment and anthropometrics adjustment between students and class furniture dimensions were measured with sound level meter, luxmeter (Hagner EC1), Computer Classroom Environment Inventory (CCEI) checklist and anthropometric kit, respectively.
Results: Results showed that space environment, work space and computer station were not satisfactory but visual space seemed appropriate which was consistent with student’s opinion. Subjective and objective evaluation of acoustical comfort was not desirable. There was not any match between student’s physical dimensions and furniture dimensions except the under table space which was consistent with the students opinions.
Conclusion: Ergonomics intervention in order to increase the ergonomics conditions of computer lab should be considered.
