Ergonomics can apply to any type of industry or profession, from wood mills and department stores to teachers and accountants.

Not a comfortable experience indeed…
That sagging feeling when you look at all the boxes, the tired arms and neck after hours of hanging curtains and the pain if cleaning the kitchen floor for the hundredth time…

Well, I am on a mission to find the exact stats and figures and will post them somewhere this week. (In between the unpacking and cleaning…)

Take care!
