For this assignment, you will evaluate the above video to identify opportunities to improve the task performed, using the concepts presented in the Unit VI Lesson. You are required to develop a PowerPoint presentation that addresses the following:
- the impact of hand tool design on injury and musculoskeletal disorder risk for each of the ergonomic selection criteria for selecting hand tools presented in the unit lesson, and
- recommendations for controlling the risk factors associated with the use of the hand tools using the hierarchy of controls (you must include at least one of each of the controls: engineering control, administrative control, and PPE).
Your PowerPoint presentation must be a minimum of 10 slides in length, not counting the title and references slides. Additionally, you must include a minimum of two outside sources, one of which must be from the CSU Online Library.

In this unit lesson, we discuss the concept of controlling ergonomic risk exposure with proper hand tool design. Hand tools are basically an extension of the hand, and if you look at most peopleâ€™s hands, you will find a mobile phone.Look at your own cell phone use. Do you think your cell phone habits put you at an ergonomic risk? Why, or why not? Describe your habits in detail.Your journal entry must be at least 200 words. No references or citations are necessary.
