Abstract An evaluation of changes introduced in work posture adjustment at visual display terminal (VDT) work stations, due to an ergonomics training course. There were significant reductions in the severity of musculoskeletal symptoms, but no such reductions were detected for the presence of symptoms. A long-term study is suggested to detect statistically significant changes.
