Office Ergonomics Book Reveals Early-Stage Solutions
Date:5/11/2009

Common Office Environments Studied

BOULDER, Colo., May 11 /PRNewswire/ -- The Chasen Group, a company that provides comprehensive and cost-effective ergonomic interventions to prevent workplace injuries, increase employee comfort, and improve productivity, today announced that John Wiley and Sons, the foremost publisher of scientific and medical journals has published a book titled "Safety Manager's Guide to Office Ergonomics," written by Craig Chasen, president.

Mr. Chasen's book is targeted toward company safety managers, HR representatives, facilities technicians, and those responsible for providing ergonomic assistance for employees, but do not have an extensive background in ergonomics. The book focuses on common office environments so that readers can easily duplicate the proven solutions suggested. Drawing from more than 4000 ergonomic evaluations he personally conducted during the last 10 years, Chasen's expertise is documented using case studies with typical challenges and their successful outcomes.

"Ergonomics-related discomfort is an increasingly prevalent workplace injury, especially for those who use computers all day," commented Mr. Chasen, a Certified Ergonomic Evaluation Specialist (CEES). "While the impact of those injuries can become extremely debilitating and expensive to treat, the solutions are not complex when implemented in the early stages of symptom development. I wrote this book so more people can learn how to identify and treat ergonomic issues early, resulting in employees who are more comfortable and more productive."

The book depicts the typical office ergonomics problems, and provides solutions for resolving ergonomics-related discomfort. It features more than 175 workstation photos that illustrate problematic postures and succinctly show exactly how they can be corrected.

The book is now available worldwide through Amazon.com, Barnes & Noble, Borders, Target, and many others, including publisher Wiley & Sons: http://www.wiley.com/WileyCDA/WileyTitle/productCd-0470257601.html
