Thank you for your interest in GoErgo's webinars. These free one-hour presentations by knowledgeable professionals and experienced volunteers provide deeper insight into topics and issues involving industrial engineers, human factors/ergonomics professionals, healthcare providers and related professions.
Presented by GOErgo/AEC - Open to All
July 17 | 2 p.m. Eastern time
Presenters: James Galante, director, business development, Southworth Products Corp and Adam Pickens PhD, MPH, Assistant Professor, Environmental and Occupational Health, Texas A&M University
This webinar will focus on two sessions presented at the 2014 Applied Ergonomics Conference.
Adam Pickens will present "Six-Month Follow-Up: Comparison of Sit-to-Stand and Stand-Biased Desks in a Call Center." This study examines stand-capable desk usage over time and also compares two types of stand-capable workstations: a sit-to-stand adjustable workstation and a stand-biased workstation.
James Galante will present "The Effects on Material Handling Equipment Design with an Aging or Obese Workforce." The reduced upper body strength, the lack of easy reach to components and controls may demand we look at improvements in the very machines that have been designed to make work easier and safer.
