Ergonomic Aspect in Home-Office Teaching


The objective of the study is to present the comfort conditions in a domestic space from an analysis of ergonomic aspects aimed at carrying out activities at home office. The emergence of the Covid-19 virus spread around the world and led many countries to enact a lockdown, with consequences for the educational and economic system, among others. Therefore, the educational teaching space that was at school became home with the Covid -19 pandemic. The activities developed by the teachers that were in person became remote. In this way, the need arose to study the space and the health impacts of these professionals, who were not adequate to meet the emergency demand and meet the teaching and learning performance of students. The methodology used comprises a quantitative, bibliographic evaluation for an ergonomic analysis of the space built and adapted to the new reality of the work of the teacher who will carry out his classes remotely in a domestic space. The conclusion of the analysis carried out on the data collected and analyzed from the factors indicated in the research regarding lighting, temperature, and noise, are not satisfactory in terms of comfort in these spaces. It was evident that this space is not suitable for carrying out such activity, these factors interfere in teaching and learning, as well as in the health of the teacher.
