Description

Description: 

This video contains a summary review of the research-based knowledge of what physical variation is, what types of measures one can think of in working life to increase (or change) the content of variation in a job, and what evidence exists for different types of action Indeed, increased variation (e.g. breaks, job rotation, alternative tasks) can actually have a positive effect in occupations that are otherwise characterized by insufficient variation. The report also rings in the need for further knowledge in the field.
