Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

The purpose of the study was to examine the influence of office ergonomic education and assessment on musculoskeletal discomfort and workstation configuration. Significant (p < .05) improvements for the pre- and posttest assessments for office workstation configuration and reported musculoskeletal discomfort were found. Office ergonomic assessment along with education may impact better office workstation configuration and decrease musculoskeletal discomfort.
