Ergonomics Self Evaluation

Ergonomic Self Evaluation Tool
       Many people do not realize that a poorly designed computer workstation and/or poor work habits can occasionally result in health problems. Common symptoms associated with poor design or habits include discomfort in the back, neck and shoulders, hands and wrists, as well as headaches and eyestrain.
     Fortunately, the solution can be quite simple. Proper workstation setup and work practices can eliminate discomfort and even prevent it from occurring in the first place! Simple adjustments to office equipment can work wonders, making work more comfortable and more productive.
