The Seva Foundation partners worldwide to create self-sustaining programs that preserve and restore sight in order to create a world free from avoidable blindness.
Seva is currently looking for a volunteer with experience in work place ergonomics to assist our partners at Aravind Eye Hospital in Madurai, India.
Health care is a profession in which the nature of the work and its working habits can take a significant toll on the physical and emotional health of the people working in the field. This often manifests as fatigue and musculoskeletal disorders, which can have a severe impact on the efficiency and engagement of employees and ultimately results in poor patient care. While we treat symptoms, treating the causes of pain, such as sitting position, chair/table height, lighting or lifestyle, can go a long way in improving employee health and wellbeing. Through this project, we would like to assess workplace ergonomics at Aravind Eye Hospital, Madurai and come up with solutions which will result in the professional and psychosocial wellbeing of hospital employees.
