Video of an early ergonomics study

This is an excerpt from a half hour documentary on the life and work of Frank Gilbreth. Gilbreth lived at the turn of the last century and was a student of Frederick Taylor. He studied work to make it more efficient. This excerpt is about his work to improve bricklaying and find the “one best way” to lay bricks. In doing so he made bricklaying more efficient but also safer. More on his life can be found at the Gilbreth Network website.
