Determining Safety

n Unit IV, you began a course project in which you reviewed the risks associated with your workstation of choice. During this unit, you will build upon that project to identify whether or not your workstation is ergonomically sound and to determine how the safety can be improved. Start by documenting your findings and comparing them to the tables found in the textbook. Make a determination as to whether your space is ergonomically safe. Look specifically at the Rapid Upper Limb Assessment (RULA) and the Rapid Entire Body Assessment (REBA). Next, make suggestions for how it can be improved. Finally, conduct research on ergonomics-related regulatory efforts and standards. Are there recommended safety standards or Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) recommendations?What are they? Also, explain if you feel the safety standards are enough to keep employees safe or if more needs to be done. (Hint: Make sure you read the Unit VII Lesson!) Your assignment should be a minimum of two pages in length. All sources must be cited and referenced according to APA standards.
