“Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” Awarded the Abbott Press “Mark of Quality” Distinction

Sixth title is recognized with "Mark of Quality" distinction.

BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - December 30, 2013 - Abbott Press, a division of Writer’s Digest, is pleased to announce “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” by Marilyn Ekdahl Ravicz is the sixth title awarded the prestigious “Mark of Quality” distinction. The Mark of Quality is reserved for books published through Abbott Press that come highly recommended for style and literary merit by Writer’s Digest reviewers.

The Mark of Quality award is a celebrated achievement in the writing community and provides many benefits. As an MOQ-honored title, “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” will be recognized in an upcoming issue of Writer’s Digest magazine—a publication depended upon since 1920 by writers striving to improve their craft. The book also will be listed in the F&W Media Catalog, an industry wholesale catalog book retailers use to identify great new books. Additionally, authors receive a free pass to the annual Writer’s Digest conference and reception, where they will have the opportunity to network with other authors, agents and industry professionals.

“When I learned I had received the Mark of Quality award for my book on ergonomics, my reactions were less like ‘Whoopee!’ and more like being surprised, grateful, excited and pleased,” said Ravicz. “Then, immediately my thoughts focused on the readers for whom I wrote the book. These thoughts included—please let the guidelines I wrote about help lessen unnecessary physical discomfort, and most of all, please let this book help protect the children who will be our future workers!”

“Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” was written for every person who works at home. If you’re paying bills, helping children with homework or operating a home-based business, those at-home duties require hours spent at home workstations. In this guidebook, Ravicz shares tips and strategies that enable readers to develop habits to work efficiently and comfortably. By learning ergonomics, readers can gain the skills necessary to conserving energy and working smarter. “Ergonomics for Home-Based Workers” aims to improve relationships with significant others, children, family and friends by teaching readers how to reduce the aches and pains of working at home.

Marilyn Ekdahl Ravicz earned a doctorate in sociocultural anthropology and spent time doing fieldwork in India, the United States and Mexico. She has more than twenty years of experience in work rehabilitation, work adjustment testing and ergonomic workstation redesign.
