Nuremberg in June 2022

Why is the Special Award Ergonomics presented?

Whether at school, in college or later in professional life - back problems arise at an early age. Too little exercise in childhood and the diverse challenges of the modern working world, such as mobile working or changing workplaces, quickly turn painful impairments into a permanent issue.

However, ergonomic products from the paper, office and stationery sector show that this does not have to be the case. These help to create an environment in which safe and concentrated work is possible. In order to make more companies aware of the topic of ergonomics and to create an incentive for the production of ergonomic solutions, Insights-X has created the Special Award Ergonomics in cooperation with the IGR.

In which categories is the award presented?

Since it is not possible to start using ergonomically good products early enough, the selection focuses on solutions that are already designed to give our schoolchildren a carefree start to the "serious side of life":

  • (School) bags and backpacks
  • Writing instruments

Which products are considered for the award?

Awards are given to products in both categories that offer demonstrable ergonomic added value and are committed to the goal of healthy working.

Who can enter a product for the award?

Anyone who offers a product from one of the two categories that has added ergonomic value. Participation in the PBS trade fair Insights-X as an exhibitor is not a prerequisite.
