This presentation will provide a detailed look at AIHA's 'An Ergonomics Guide to Computer Workstations,' 2nd Edition . The American Industrial Hygiene Association (AIHA) defines ergonomics as a multidisciplinary science that applies design principles based on the physical and psychological capabilities of people to the design of jobs, equipment, products, and workplaces. The original 1994 guide summarized the peer-reviewed basic research prior to the early nineties. Since that time, the knowledge base provided by peer-reviewed data has continued to grow. In addition, the work environment has continued to evolve with significant changes in the equipment used and the time spent on the computer. The 2nd edition updates the information for industrial hygienists and occupational health and safety professionals. The guide provides a means to familiarize individuals designing computer workstations, working with computers for extended periods, and responsible for the health and safety of workers. Focus will be placed on the causes of upper extremity discomfort, back pain, and vision complaints and available controls. We will cover musculoskeletal risk factors such as repetition, forceful exertions, static postures, awkward postures, localized contact stress, psychosocial stress, special applications, and economics.
Presenters: Sheree Gibson, Ergonomics Applications; Cathy White, The Dow Chemical Company.
