The Ergonomically Positioned Workstation
PERFECT POSITIONING WITH THE PROPER PRODUCTS
Slouching, slumping or bending forward at the waist in a chair can lead to discomfort, fatigue and backache. Follow these guidelines to help prevent problems from occurring when sitting at your workstation.
A - Adjust the height of your seat so that your feet are resting firmly on the floor. Use a footrest if you feel that your feet are not supported properly.
B - The depth of your seat should allow the back of your knees to extend beyond the edge of your seat. Thighs should be approximately parallel to the floor.
C - Your forearm should be open at least 90°-100° to your upper arm.
D - Your wrists should not be angled up or down.
E - Set the height of the worksurface so that you can work without straining or bending. Arrange commonly used items (stapler, phone etc.) so that they are within easy reach.
F -The top one-third of your computer screen should be at or below eye-level; the distance between your eyes and the monitor should be 18” or more — typically arm’s length.
G - Document holder in line with front of monitor. Height and angle adjustable for the comfort of the user.
