Unit III Assignment
In the Unit III Lesson, we presented the problems that Amy is facing in her current workstation. Amy, who works as a cashier in a big-box store, works 8-hour shifts but is often asked to work overtime for up to 4 hours. Amy is now experiencing knee, hip, and lower back pain after working.

- Explain why it is important for the ergonomics team to implement a plan that considers potential discrimination or disability issues for other employees.
