This talk, The Invisible Aspects of Work, is a
Powerpoint presentation (delivered here as a PDF file). Dr Robin Mitchell

staff to understand some of the issues in modern work. Why do people get
sore? How big should a desk be? How should tasks be organised (because you
need to design the workplace to support that)?
