Office Ergonomics. Karl H. Office workers form a large and growing proportion of the workforce, especially with the growth of the service sector. Almost all of us work in computerised offices, and have become strongly attached to these machines. We wish to be productive and successful, satisfied with our work, get along with our fellow workers; we do not want to suffer aches in wrists, shoulders or back, or any headaches. This is a practical book, but it is based on sound theory and research.
