||This booklet describes the characteristics of a work position in front of a computer screen and its ergonomic environment (work surface, chair, footrest, copy holder, work posture, equipment layout, lighting, arrangement of workplaces within the office, thermal environment). The ergonomics of the computer application used (ease of use, efficiency and suitability to the task at hand), the work organization and psychological issues (anxiety, stress) linked to work at computer screens are also important elements that need to be taken into account when conducting a job study. Appendices include: forms for conducting job studies of display-screen workplaces and self-evaluation exercises, including answers and comments.
