'Whether you work at home for money, for family care or simply to perform daily tasks, there are ways to perform jobs so that one’s body is not strained or overly fatigued,' Ravicz says.
Palm Springs, CA (PRWEB) August 15, 2013
The importance of ergonomics in the workplace has long been established, but few consider the same requirements for their homes. In her new book “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers: Use Your Brain to Save Your Body” (published by Abbott Press), author Marilyn Ekdahl Ravicz offers more than 20 years of experience to readers looking to make their home space more ergonomic.
“Whether you work at home for money, for family care or simply to perform daily tasks, there are ways to perform jobs so that one’s body is not strained or overly fatigued,” Ravicz says. “Arranging tools, materials and equipment properly, and using them with appropriate rests, shifts in tasks and so forth all help.”
As Ravicz notes, the field of ergonomics has learned how to assist workers to perform successfully. “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” applies ergonomic guidelines to home-based work to help children, as well as adults.
Ravicz’s goal in presenting “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” is to encourage her readers to realize how easy it is to make simple changes and gain comfort.
