TEXTBOOK – Occupational Ergonomics: A Practical Approach
Theresa Stack; Lee T. Ostrom; Cheryl Wilhemsen
Choose a hand tool that is most frequently used in your work area or an area you are familiar with. Describe the history of the tool and how it came to be the most frequently used.
Show photos of previous versions of said tool and what it looks like today. Forecast what the tool could look like 10, 20, or 30 years into the future.
Discuss what types of work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) could be assumed to occur from overuse of the tool. And finally, what would you do to make it better for you to use in your workspace?
The total number of content slides should be 10. Make the PowerPoint presentation interesting and engaging for the audience members who are going to attend your presentation. A title slide and reference slide should be included, but they
are not part of the 10 content slides.
References should include the textbook and two other sources found on the internet. Wikipedia is not considered a source
