Título Effects of video display terminals on telephone operators
Información bibliográfica Dec. 1982, Vol.24, No.6, p.699-711. 19 ref.
Resumen 145 operators using a video display terminal (VDT) to give telephone listings, and 105 controls doing the same work from printed paper records were studied by questionnaire. There were few differences in work-related physical discomfort, job satisfaction, and job security concerns. Both groups used contact lenses and eye glasses to the same extent. VDT operators did not obtain special corrective lenses for work. Replacement of paper documents with VDTs did not adversely affect the comfort and morale of office workers.
