Nelson Rolihlahla Mandela passed away at 8:50pm on Thursday night, at home in his bed with many family members at his side.
Madiba was born on the 18th July 1918 and died tonight, aged 95. He spent years in 27 years in prison for his role in the battle against apartheid. He went on to serve 5 years as president of South Africa.
President Zuma: "Our nation has lost our greatest son. Our people have lost a father. This is the moment of our deepest sorrow."
Archbishop Desmond Tutu: "Nelson Mandela is mourned by South Africans, Africans and the international community today as the leader of our generation who stood head and shoulders above his contemporaries — a colossus of unimpeachable moral character and integrity, the world's most admired
and revered public figure."
President Obama: "We have lost one of the most influential, courageous, profoundly 'good' human beings that any of us will share time with on this earth." "I am one of the countless millions who drew inspiration from Nelson Mandela's life. My very first political action... was a protest against apartheid. I would study his words and his writings."
President Bill Clinton: "Today the world has lost one of its most important leaders and one of its finest human beings. History will remember Nelson Mandela as a champion for human dignity and freedom, for peace and reconciliation."

Considering that having women in the workplace has been a common occurrence since at least the 1960s, why do we still harp on about the issue? As long as women at all levels continue to express their dissatisfaction with working conditions, South African companies will have to address the issue of what they should do to make their workplaces more attractive to the fairer sex because, in short, is that it makes economic sense: research has shown that…Continue
We knew this day would come but it is hard to express our feelings. I am relieved that his suffering is over and he can rest in peace. No one would want him to linger on. But he was, as President Jacob Zuma said, ‘Africa’s greatest son.’ And President Barak Obama said, ‘He was one of the…Continue

I’m often asked if we need ergonomics in our business environments. Employers often feel that the services we provide, as ergonomists, are ahead of our industry needs.
