Workplace design and implementing ergonomic principles is a key component to promoting a productive and comfortable workspace,
With office workers spending an increasing number of hours at a desk, whether that be at home or in the office, the importance of correct ergonomic setup is more crucial than ever. Having the correct setup not only reduces workplace-related injuries but will also improve the productivity and work efficiency of the worker.
Did you know that ergonomics is more than just simply adjusting a chair? Assessing workspace components such as lighting, screen heights and positioning are all factors we need to take into consideration. Something as simple as positioning a computer screen at the correct height will decrease the unnecessary repetitive motion of a person’s neck, and reduce eye fatigue.
