So you’ve read up on the benefits of ergonomic office products. You’ve heard rave reviews about the top ergonomic office chairs, ergonomic computer solutions (i.e. advanced keyboard mechanisms and adjustable monitor arms), and desktop components for training desks.
We’ve probably all experienced a stiff neck or a sore back from sitting all day, and it’s no fun. With proper ergonomics, however, such ailments can often be alleviated.
Good ergonomics in the workplace, will enhance employee comfort and increase productivity. Ergonomics is essentially the science of adapting a job or position to specifically fit the worker - and the Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA) has taken on a leading role in helping promote and advocate for such environments.
In this post, we'll take a closer look at OSHA's ergonomics guidelines for a healthy workplace:
With the COVID-19 pandemic still in effect and winter fast approaching, it’s crucial to be prepared for the work-from-home holiday.
Ergonomics is about more than how you position your body. It’s also about where. So it's important to consider the best office desk position, whether at home or at work.
Is standing at work healthier than sitting? Yes, but even employees with a sit-stand desk don’t want to be on their feet all day.
Today “motion control” implies automation, robotics, and electronics. But you’d be amazed what you can achieve when you combine old-fashioned mechanical engineering with a creativity-minded manufacturer.
Ergonomics isn’t just about what kind of ergonomic office products you’re using; ergonomics is about making life easier and relaxing your customers’ or employees’ bodies to be more comfortable. Whether at work, home, or a medical facility, you can always apply ergonomics.
If your office or classroom is spending a good portion of its day sitting at a desk and working on a computer, you probably already know how important it is to promote correct office ergonomics. A healthy work lifestyle reduces back, neck, and eye strain, as well as the risk of desk job-related injuries like carpal tunnel syndrome.
The benefits of better ergonomics are well documented and include wide-ranging health, safety, and comfort benefits. In medical environments, ergonomic furniture and devices are especially important because of the multitude of people they can impact -- and we’re not just talking about patients.
The COVID-19 scare has forced workers out of their comfort zones. Most office employees have been setting up to work from home -- many for the first time -- for the long haul.
