Rapid technological development in the work environment has exposed more of us to the need to work “with” and “for” computers at work. “Computer phobics” are still found in the workplace, but a great majority of us are now required to work with computers, in some way. It has become a part of daily work practice that also forms part of our wider physical working environment.

In this section, issues related to new technology are considered first, followed by scrutiny of the impact of physical demands in the work environment on our well-being and functioning.
