Safety Manager’s Guide to Office Ergonomics offers easy-to-follow, non-technical advice that helps you prevent on-the-job injury. You’ll learn how to create comfortable, productive working environments, as well as resolve employee discomfort before it becomes a debilitating injury. This book guides you through the ergonomic evaluation process and then logically organizes employee discomfort by the body part affected. Using his own ergonomic evaluations as case studies, the author shows how employees express a particular discomfort and visualize the posture and workstation setup that caused or contributed to the complaint. Each case ends with easy-to-implement solutions for resolve the discomfort. Because ergonomic solutions are specific to an individual’s size, work activities and workstation configuration, the author provides several scenarios for each area of discomfort, helping you tailor your solution to the specific needs of the employee. The book helps you evaluate and purchase office equipment that enables employees to work as comfortably and productively as possible.
Written in straightforward language, Safety Manager’s Guide to Office Ergonomics is ideal for anyone responsible for creating and managing a healthy work environment.
