homework help?

by admin on June 14, 2010

left handed individuals are more likely to have accidents at work than are right handed individuals, in fact 25% more likely. If they are working with tools and machinery, 51% more likely.
Accommodations such as being able to rearrange the work area and having tools available that are either left or right hand adapted would make the workplace a safer place to be.

Can you suggest ways that the work place could be made safer? Or, what could be done in the classroom that would make it easier for students who are left handed to take notes or tests? What about working on computers? The mouse is actually made for people who are right handed. How adaptable must a left handed person become in order not to be frustrated by using a right handed mouse?

Well, first of all my daughter is left handed and uses the computer without complaint. She just uses the mouse as anyone would. I think that at school as well as in the work place that it’d be nice if there were desks that would accommodate lefties, you know with the arm rest being on the left as opposed as the right. Not sure what else can be done….except having left handed scissors maybe.
