Everyone’s heard horror stories of back pain, wrist strains, and other ailments caused by general office work and those who have experienced these aches and pains because of their job know how disruptive it can be to their lives.

Work-related injuries can be intablescredibly disruptive to a business, with some cases causing the employee to require time off work to recover. This is why it is important that companies make special efforts to prevent work-related health issues. The key to avoiding pain from prolonged sitting, typing or other office activities is to consider ergonomics when choosing office apparatus, furniture, and general design.

What is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics looks at how individuals work in their environment. It is used to improve the general wellbeing of people at work in regards to health and safety. Using ergonomics when designing an office space will make employees more comfortable and reduce cases of common work-related injuries.

The HSE has a useful guide that you can view here about ergonomics in the workplace

meshConsidering Ergonomics when choosing Office Furniture

There are a number of areas that you need to consider ergonomics when designing your office, from office lighting to computer accessories. One of the main areas you’ll need to focus on is your office chairs.

Consider how much lumbar support the chair will give and whether it is the correct height for your desks and workstations. You will also want to consider comfort levels – it is always a good idea to choose a cushioned seat if the chair is going to be used for a working day.

It is a good practice to educate your employees on health and safety at work, and encourage them to take regular breaks that involve light exercise, such as walking or stretching, to avoid persistent problems.
