Sitting On The Job
Sitting On The Job: A Practical Survival Guide For People Who Earn Their Livings While Sitting.
No longer does the sedentary worker have to suffer from tingling or aching hands, neck or back pain, headaches or fatigue that can be so debilitating. Dr. Scott W. Donkin details the many variables that must be considered so that workers who sit for many hours a day can function effectively in a supportive and healthy work environment. For instance, each work station needs to be individually adjusted to suit the particular worker’s body, lighting must be appropriate to the specific task, and there shouldn’t be drafts or distracting noises.
Dr. Donkin discusses all the possible physical ailments and conditions that can arise from poor working conditions and then offers ways to cure or prevent them. He points out the many negative effects of stress and what can be done to alleviate it. Perhaps the most practical chapter in the book details the many things to do to help counteract the physical effects of sitting. For example, Dr. Donkin recommends taking frequent micro-breaks to counteract tension buildup and fatigue in muscles and eyes. Stretching fingers, wrists and hands and looking into the distance several times an hour can significantly reduce strain. Illustrations are used effectively throughout the book to show problems and provide practical solutions.
Dr. Donkin released Sitting On The Job in 1987. It has been in print and widely used for over 25 years. Now Sitting On The Job is available as an e-book to conveniently help even more people.
