In the Unit III Lesson, we presented the problems that Amy is facing in her current workstation.
Amy, who works as a cashier in a big-box store, works 8-hour shifts but is often asked to work overtime for up to 4 hours. Amy is now experiencing knee, hip, and lower back pain after working.
You have been asked to assemble a team to address the ergonomics issues Amy is facing and to explain a possible solution. Your assignment should meet the following criteria:
1. Identify and explain the different roles within the team (you may use bullets for this section).
2. Explain how the ergonomics team can work together to help Amy with her current workstation. Include a possible suggestion to improve Amy’s workstation as part of your discussion.
3. Explain why it is important for the ergonomics team to implement a plan that considers potential discrimination or disability issues for other employees.
This assignment should be at least two pages in length. Outside sources are not a requirement for this assignment. You are expected to complete this assignment based upon your reading, experience, and opinions.
