ergonomics

This assignment involves reading two separate scenarios and then completing an ergonomics observation report (EOR) for each scenario. Click here to access the scenarios along with the corresponding EORs. The purpose of this assignment is for you to begin using the process of observing workers and their work environments, while specifically relating the human body to ergonomics. Although this assignment does not require preparing a formal piece of writing, you are expected to use your own words to answer the questions. Complete the EORs.

Scenarios

Instructions: Read both Scenario #1 and also Scenario #2, and then complete the ergonomics observation reports by clearly answering the questions that have been listed within each report.

Scenario #1: Beth’s Office Setting. Beth works in an office setting for five days per week. In her cubicle, she typically uses her computer to perform her responsibilities. While Beth only stands five feet and two inches tall, the equipment at her cubicle is more suitable for a taller employee. One advantage is that she is able to adjust the height on her rolling desk chair. After performing her responsibilities at her cubicle for several years, Beth has been recently suffering from back and neck pain. As a result, Beth communicated her pain to her company and has requested an evaluation by a doctor.
