are being constructed throughout North America as a means to promote environmental
sustainability. Evidence suggests that much attention
is being paid to the environmental impact of such buildings, but less so to
the health impacts on the occupants. This webinar will discuss the common occupant concerns and how the integration of ergonomics can improve
the health of computer users, as well as the revised Leadership in Environmental Design (LEED) Pilot
Credit 44 ergonomics approach for computer users that supports the integration
of ergonomics with green building design, construction and operations.
