The Ergonomically Positioned Workstation


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 - The height of your work surface should allow you to work without reaching or bending. Arrange commonly used items such as staplers and phones so that they are within easy reach.
B - Forearms should be parallel to the floor and at an approximate 90 degree angle from your upper arms.
C - Wrists, neck and head should be in a relaxed neutral position – not angled up or down.
D - The distance between your eyes and the monitor should be at least 15.7” or more – typically arms’ length.
E - The top one-third of your computer screen should be positioned at or below eye level.
G -Adjust the height of your seat so that your feet are resting firmly on the floor. Use a foot rest if you feel that your feet are not properly supported.
H - 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.
