The employees site this article in Men’s Health (slide 8) https://www.menshealth.com/health/g19540891/dangerous-activities/?slide=8 which states, “…stay on your feet to stave off death.” The committee then recommends that the company provide this standing workstation to all office employees https://express.google.com/product/5676835180188384664_4650580091428314872_110815909?mall=WashingtonDC&directCheckout=1&utm_source=google_shopping&utm_medium=product_ads&utm_campaign=gsx Assignment: The Director of Operations tasks you with reviewing the Safety Committee’s recommendation.
