Topic:  Ergonomics According to the Doctor and the Workman

This presentation combines the unique life experiences of a Doctor of Physical Therapy and a seasoned safety professional. While both presenters are knowledgeable in the field of ergonomics, they have different perspectives on this topic. This presentation combines those perspectives into an informative and sometimes light hearted discussion that includes investment vs cost, why computer workstations may be hazardous to our health, steps to prevent repetitive motion injuries, and current ergonomic equipment.

Presented By:   Claire Wilson and Steve Workman
