We are the volunteer component of the former Coalition on New Office Technology (CNOT).


Since 1984, we have advocated for the health, safety, and rights of workers, focusing largely but not exclusively on computer-related repetitive strain injuries (RSIs). Our mission has encompassed support and resources for injured and at-risk workers, the organization of injured workers, training of individuals and organizations on ergonomics and RSI prevention, and advocacy for change in public policy and workplace practices.


We are the continuation of the nonprofit corporation that operated CNOT and ceased operation in spring 2002 due to funding issues in a difficult economic climate. Over the years we have employed several names in addition to RSI Action and CNOT for our various functions, including Office Technology Education Project (OTEP) and Technology Education Clearinghouse (TEC).
