Three years ago (holy crap!), I put out the first version of the EMCrit RSI Checklist in this Podcast (92). Vahe Ender (@ inspired me to reduce it to a business card/ID card sized version. I also simplified, clarified, and improved every aspect of the checklist. So here is the 2.0 version. The original is still great, it may just take a few seconds longer to use the old one. This is a no bullshit, less than 60 second version that has been field-tested 100's of times.
