Welfare and Ergonomics are two terms concerning man and his well-being. Welfare in its various meanings is the body of social policies aimed at affirming the right to citizenship, although in recent decades some changes have modified the original system, calling into question the fairness between generations and genders, between those who have and do not have work and between professional categories. Ergonomics as a method is linked to the development of technology, although over time it has broadened its scope of interest and, through a methodology of participatory design, has dealt with culture, reception, integration and professional awareness, while remaining an operational tool for health and safety at work. The two terms were born in the same context: welfare with the introduction of laws on compulsory insurance against risks arising from work done; ergonomics with the design of spaces, of the tools and production processes according to the specific skills of the workers. Modern welfare and modern ergonomics, going through various phases and involving an increasing number of areas of study/intervention, have come to take care, with different variations, of the man in the interaction with the environment. Both stressed the importance of maintaining psycho-physical and relational well-being. The magazine, combining these two terms, aims to develop a new way of studying citizens' welfare and safety problems by mixing established knowledge in social policy with the multidisciplinary approach and ergonomics methods. Integration between welfare policies and ergonomics makes it possible to look at social issues in different interpretative ways in an attempt to find more effective and sustainable solutions.
