TNO Kwaliteit van Leven Publication year 2009 Abstract Is artisans' comfort in using hand tools a necessity or a luxury? Ergonomically well-designed hand tools, which provide comfort to the user, decrease the risk of occupational health problems and increase the job performance. Therefore, it is not a luxury, but rather a necessity that hand tools be designed with a focus on comfort, and that artisans make themselves informed about the use of ergonomically well-designed hand tools. © Springer Science + Business Media, LLC 2009.
