An ergonomically designed work area is proven to increase the productivity and wellbeing of office workers. The comfort level of your staff is closely associated with how long they can continue to operate at a high work rate. As the working day progresses, well designed seating and desks can reduce the fatigue levels that build in workers and keep everyone working at their best and feeling great.
The human body was not designed to stay in static postures for long period of time. A well designed ergonomic chair provides support and movement to encourage blood circulation and good posture. Many organisations choose seating based on its appearance or cost without taking into account the positive benefits of a proactive stance on ergonomic design can bring.
Desks can be equally important. Whether it be height adjustment to allow for wheelchair users or varying body sizes, or simple good design that improves workflow it is important to give thought to desks as being more than a piece of wood on a metal frame.
The final component of a good ergonomic workstation is the mounting of the computer monitor on an easy to adjust arm that ensures that screen is placed at the correct height.
