In the Wednesday June 16 session, "Transportation Ergonomics: Factors Leading to Discomfort and Injury," Atlas ergonomic services director David Brodie will present a year-long study of 28,000+ truck drivers, showing correlations between driver physiology, cab environment and risks of specific injuries.
