Abstract

Date Presented 04/05/19

As an ergonomic intervention follow-up, this study will be important as it shows that ergonomic assessments are substantial in producing prolonged health and wellness, increased knowledge of ergonomics, and workstation safety in order to further reduce risk for injury for computer workers. It also demonstrates OT’s ability to sustain ergonomic programs over a period of time to improve worker safety.
