The Office Ergonomics Tool Kit With Training Disc Book Excerpt:

Computers revolutionized the office, and employees in many workplaces are still making adjustments... hunching their shoulders, tilting their necks, and sitting in awkward positions. When bright screens and bulky equipment can't be moved or shifted, it's the user who makes the compensations. Relief from "desk discomfort" is possible, through a science that not only solves that immediate problem, but also holds substantial benefits for employer and employee alike. Ergonomics is the science (and art) of workplace design for maximum physical comfort, maximum efficiency-and prevention of injury at the workplace. Its potential results: greater productivity, heightened morale, and reduced compensation for work-induced injuries. Keep in mind: most worker's compensation costs are for Cumulative Trauma Disorders (CTD). The Office Ergonomics Tool Kit: With Training Disc provides a sensible step-by-step method to bring Ergonomics and its wonders to your workplace. Written for facilities managers, office managers, small business owners, office managers, and other non-professional ergonomists alike, its comprehensive and clear instructions enable managers to "fit" ergonomics principles to the exact needs of any office/workplace. Every bit of advice in Office Ergonomics Tool Kit: With Training Disc is already in practice at offices that have consulted author Dan MacLeod. Many Fortune 100 companies in both offices and general industry have saved millions of dollars through guidance. Industrial Hygiene and Safety News names MacLeod "one of the key players influencing both government and ergonomic standards and industrial control strategies."

The Computer User s Survival Guide Book Excerpt:

You probably suspect, on some level, that computers might be hazardous to your health. You might vaguely remember a study that you read years ago about miscarriages being more frequent for data entry operators. Or you might have run into a co-worker wearing splints and talking ominously about Workers' Comp insurance. Or you might notice that when you use a computer too long, you get stiff and your eyes get dry.But who wants to worry about such things? Surely, the people wearing splints must be malingerers who don't want to work? Surely, the people who design keyboards and terminals must be working to change their products if they are unsafe? Surely, so long as you're a good worker and keep your mind on your job, nothing bad will happen to you?The bad news is: You can be hurt by working at a computer. The good news is that many of the same factors that pose a risk to you are within your own control. You can take action on your own to promote your own health -- whether or not your terminal manufacturer, keyboard designer, medical provider, safety trainer, and boss are working diligently to protect you.The Computer User's Survival Guide looks squarely at all the factors that affect your health on the job, including positioning, equipment, work habits, lighting, stress, radiation, and general health.Through this guide you will learn: a continuum of neutral postures that you can at utilize at different work tasks how radiation drops off with distance and what electrical equipment is responsible for most exposure how modern office lighting is better suited to working on paper than on a screen, and what you can do to prevent glare simple breathing techniques and stretches to keep your body well oxygenated and relaxed, even when you sit all day how reading from a screen puts unique strains on your eyes and what kind of vision breaks will keep you most productive and rested what's going on "under the skin" when your hands and arms spend much of the day mousing and typing, and how you can apply that knowledge to prevent overuse injuries The Computer User's Survival Guide is not a book of gloom and doom. It is a guide to protecting yourself against health risks from your computer, while boosting your effectiveness and your enjoyment of work.

As a science educator, you know the importance of using the best safety practices to protect your students physically during hands-on science instruction. But do you also know how to protect yourself legally even in aging facilities and crowded labs? Learn the regulations and how to apply them with this clear, easy-to-use guide to both safety practices and legal standards. The NSTA Ready-Reference Guide to Safer Science is a compendium of 39 "Scope on Safety" columns from Science Scope, NSTA's member journal for middle schools. Major sections cover safety practices and legal standards, on subjects as diverse as asbestos, ergonomics, and bloodborne pathogens, and instuctional safety, including the challenges of occupancy loads, field trips, and safer science for special-needs students. Each section is divided into four parts: general science, chemistry, physical science, and biology. An appendix includes the NSTA position statements related to safer practices and resources and referenes from all the columns. But especially intriguing is the section devoted to questions teachers ask. Is it safe to allow backpacks, open-toe shoes, and long synthetic nails in the lab?
