Título Will musculoskeletal and visual stress change when visual display unit (VDU) operators move from small offices to an ergonomically optimized office landscape?
Información bibliográfica Nov. 2011, Vol.42, No.6, p.839-845. Illus. 45 ref.
Resumen This study investigated the effect of moving from small offices to a landscape environment for 19 visual display unit (VDU) operators. The operators reported significantly improved lighting and glare conditions. Furthermore, visual discomfort was also significantly reduced on a Visual Analogue Scale (VAS). There was no significant correlation between lighting conditions and visual discomfort, neither in the small offices nor in the office landscape. However, visual discomfort correlated significantly with glare in small offices. This correlation disappeared after the lighting system in the office landscape was improved. Other findings are discussed. By careful design and construction of an office landscape with regard to lighting and visual conditions, transfer from small offices may be acceptable from a visual-ergonomic point of view.
