Ergonomics Assessment in the Workplace

Poor posture and ineffective workplace ergonomics are the leading causes of back pain and muscle stiffness. Ergonomics can improve the health and well-being of employees while also promoting productivity and efficiency.

There’s a certain way we should be sitting at our desk and be positioned in order to prevent stiffness and pain, but what does that look like? Here are a few tips:

  • The top of your computer monitor should be lined up directly with your eyeline so that while you’re working you can keep your head in a nice, neutral, and comfortable position.
  • There should be enough room on your desk to rest your forearms to prevent your upper neck muscles to overwork and support the weight of your arms.
  • Your lower back should be touching the chair ideally in a neutral or slightly extended position. If you need to, feel free to add a pillow to get in this position.
  • Your feet should be flat on the floor with your knees bent at roughly 90 degrees.

If you’re struggling with your ergonomic setup, contact Tx:Team today to find out how you can set up a personalized ergonomic assessment.
