Now in its second edition, this comprehensive text includes recent findings regarding job stressors and a variety of ergonomic solutions. It provides up-to-date research on the biomechanics of the upper limbs and the mechanics of neuromuscular systems. It covers risk factors for various disorders and tools used to identify their causes.

Taking an application-oriented approach, these exercises encourage students to apply rigorous analyses to collected data. The book contains nearly three dozen exercises covering workplace environment, work analysis, information processing, physiological issues, and systems evaluations. Some are pencil and paper exercises, some are stopwatch studies, some require special laboratory equipment, and others are field exercises.
