Ergonomics is the study of how we interact with our physical environment, including our tools, equipment and furniture, and how we use those items to complete our tasks.  Are there times when you feel your equipment is set up in an awkward way or that supplies and equipment are out of reach? Does it feel like your office just doesn’t “fit?” Would you like to identify ways to arrange your work area for more comfort and ease of movement? Then this workshop is given just for you. Join Mary Kay Englen for an interactive workshop that will help you evaluate your work area, chair, desk and computer setup and suggest ways to create effective and healthy work practices.
