Dr. Barbara Rodwin demonstrates and explains proper workstation ergonomics in this video:
Ergonomics is the science of fitting the workplace to the human beings who inhabit it. Nowadays, more people are working behind desks for prolonged periods of time, especially at computer workstations, which can create postural strain conditions such as those described in our Common Conditions section. The picture shows how people commonly sit – this can cause injuries to all parts of the body! Read on to change your habits.
At Back to Health, our professional staff is available to perform workplace ergonomic assessments and deliver guest presentations on ergonomic topics such as:
- How to sit properly
- Lifting techniques
- How to fit workstations to their inhabitants, and,
- Stress management.
The examination and correction of work station ergonomics can reduce the occurrence of postural strain and result in happier, more productive staff. Send us an e-mail if you would like to arrange an ergonomics assessment or lecture from our staff. If you answer no to the questions below, you will need to fix this setup.
