Precautions When Using Computers for Long Periods

ERGONOMICS AT VISUAL DISPLAY TERMINALS
WORKSTATION AND POSTURE DURING VDT USE, VISION AND LIGHTING, GENERAL GUIDELINES, WORK ENVIRONMENT

http://knol.google.com/k/rauf-iqbal/ergonomics-at-visual-display-terminals/74wllt8z4n5y/7#

Main Point made in the knol

The concept of ergonomics is not only confined to the shop floor of an industry, it has also occupied its space in the office premises as Office Ergonomics. One part of Office Ergonomics is Visual Display Terminal (VDT) ergonomics. VDT comprises of computer and its workstation, which includes positioning of the computer, working posture at the computer as well as the workstation for computer, like computer table, chair, accessories and work environment etc (ISO, 1998). People whose occupations involve spending prolonged period of time at the computer workstation are subjected to stresses that may lead to painful, debilitating conditions (Saito, 1996; Swoboda, 1992). The resulting stress may cause higher levels of fatigue and tension during the day. Prolonged exposure to a non-ergonomic working environment may lead to the development of Cumulative Trauma disorders, or CTD’S (Saito, 1996; Laville, 1980). Cumulative Trauma disorders or CTD’S are a class of injuries that arise from putting excessive pressure on the body to perform over a period of time.

Various suggestions are given in the knol to avoid problems.

Capitalist Morality versus Socialist Morality

http://knol.google.com/k/narayana-rao-kvss/capitalist-morality-versus-socialist/2utb2lsm2k7a/1234

According to Yevgeny Bugaev's book, the essence of capitalist morality is individualism, careerism, worship of the monied and contempt for penniless. Some of the moral principles of capitalist societies are, “If you do not want to be a slave, try to become a slave-owner”, “dog eat dog”, and “each for himself”. Capitalism cripples people morally and humiliates their dignity.


Socialists or communists promote moral views which express the interests and ideals of all working humankind. Socialists believe that working man’s nature is originally devoid of loafer, mercenary, and hooligan instincts.

This knol will examine and facilitate discussion on the issue.
