Organising your workplace to promote efficiency & comfort
Ergonomics is the study of how equipment and furniture can be arranged in order that people can do work or other activities more efficiently and comfortably.
The economic cost of work related injury and illness runs into the millions every year. Some of these injuries can be linked to poor work-space with lower back pain being the most common work related disability affecting employees from offices, building sites & agriculture.
Ergonomics aims to improve work-spaces and environments to minimise risk of injury or harm. So as technologies change, so too does the need to ensure that the tools we access for work are designed for our body’s requirements. Regular desk ‘health checks’, movable desks, ergonomic keyboards, wrist rests, adequate lighting…there is a broad range of equipment available to ensure you and your staff are comfortable and safe in the workplace.
