OFFICE ERGONOMICS

Office ergonomics keeps employees healthy, productive, and alert!

The importance of office ergonomics

office-ergonomicsIn the days when typists were trained to sit with their backs straight and their feet directly in front of them to capture proper posture, office ergonomics was not really a consideration. In today’s office environment, many workers perform their tasks in a virtual world, spending a majority of the day in front of computer screens, often located in a “cube,” of “workstation” and are responsible for multitasking for 10 or more hours a day. As a result, workers are experiencing more stress and work- related injuries of which some are due to poor ergonomics.

 

Significance

Because office ergonomics targets the arrangement of your workspace, productivity and overall quality of daily work can improve and the risk of injury can decrease. While the majority of work- related injuries occur due to falls, improper lifting techniques, repetitive movements and awkward positioning, using approved ergonomic furniture and arranging the workspace to fit the way a person works in the office can alleviate or at minimum eliminate some of the factors that contribute to these injuries.

Injuries

The most common office-related injuries involve the musculoskeletal, vision and hearing systems. Musculoskeletal injuries that can result from poor ergonomics include bursitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle strains, tendinitis and tennis elbow. Vision impairments include eye strain; watery, red and swollen eyes; double-vision; headaches due to eye strain; and neck and shoulder pain from poor posture. The inability to concentrate that can be caused by noises from nearby office machines and coworker conversations can result in hearing issues.

Benefits of Ergonomic Office Furniture

Injuries and health problems can develop from office workers spending hours each day sitting in desk chairs and working on computers. The development of more comfortable furniture that also helps prevent injury, is one way this issue is being addressed. There are many benefits to office workers from using ergonomic furniture and practices.

While using Ergonomic Office Furniture, a number of exercises at work can help greatly reduce the risk of workplace injuries.

I ordered two chairs for our office. Our communication and delivery were flawless. And the chairs are incredibly comfortable. I wouldn't hesitate to purchase for Ergomotion again professionally or personally.

Quality product and excellent customer service. I purchased an E-desk with an optional hardwood top and it's excellent. The desktop looks fantastic and the stand / electronics are top quality - solid and quiet when operating. Guy is excellent to deal with. I wouldn't hesitate to recommend.

One word: AMAZING!. The quality of the desk is absolutely AMAZING! I was so indecsive and have been searching for desks for more then 5months! I was blessed to come across Ergomotion and speak to Guy. From the very first conversation, his customer service was AMAZING! He was so informative, clear, gentle and kind. He came to my house and installed everything so promptly and took all the rubbish and cleaned up and was also so wonderful to my mum. Would recommend anyone looking for a sit/stand desk to talk to Guy first! Thanks again 🙏

Absolutely amazing product and customer experience. Anyone sitting on the fence or considering other alternatives, please just do yourself a favour and put an order in with Ergomotion. The quality of the walnut desk I received was stunning, topped off by some very friendly and considerate service from Guy himself. Could not have asked for more and am already recommending to friends, family and colleagues alike. Keep up the good work guys!
