Article start

I don't claim any expertise in this subject but I just wanted to add something for this missing article.

The first draft is imported from the first few sections of the Wikipedia article (with some later editing). The latter sections of the Wikipedia article may also be useful but I am not knowledgeable enough in the topic to check its accuracy so I and would prefer an expert vet them before adding them or else people just add original content.

The following may be useful for further contributions: Understanding ergonomics at work and Ergoweb. Mark Jones 08:37, 26 June 2008 (CDT)

It turns out, after reading Understanding ergonomics at work, that a large part of this document was actually plagiarized in the "Overview" section of the Wikipedia article (if I were being charitable I would say the author forget to cite it but the text was wholesale copied over without even a reference). I've now re-written the section and added the document as a reference and it probably reads better now anyway. It just goes to show it always pays to check these things when importing articles from external sources!! Mark Jones 09:38, 26 June 2008 (CDT)
