CAIRO BOOKS's Description
Easy-to-implement advice for comfortable, productive work environments
Safety Managers 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 discomfort becomes a debilitating injury. With some
fifteen years of experience in office ergonomics, author Craig Chasen has
performed more than 4,000 ergonomic evaluations of employees and their work
environments, which form the foundation of the book.
Safety Managers Guide to Office Ergonomics 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
enables you to hear how employees express a particular discomfort and visualize
the posture and workstation set-up that caused or contributed to the complaint.
Each case ends with easy-to-implement solutions to 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 an employee. This book also helps you evaluate and purchase
office equipment that enables employees to work as comfortably and productively
Written in straightforward language, Safety Managers Guide to Office
Ergonomics is ideal for anyone responsible for creating and managing a healthy
work environment. Even if you are not responsible for others, you'll find that
this book's helpful advice enables you to avoid on-the-job injury and work as
comfortably as possible.
