Check out the Cornell Dept. of Design and Environmental Analysis Ergo-Webpage
http://ergo.human.cornell.edu/
Faculty there are involved in design of Steelcase and other office
eqipment/furniture, and have some interesting research on ergonomics and
design issues both for furniture and the larger office environment.
You might also look at other freeware educational materials at our archive
of OSH educatonal materials at http://ext.ilr.cornell.edu/osh/ where you
can select the archive and then search for ergonomics materials. Some
might be useful.
Regards,
Jim
