Top 10 Office Ergonomics Tips:
- Flat panel displays placed 20 inches away take up less space and can help reduce awkward body positions that may lead to eyestrain.
- To reduce contact stress, put the keyboard directly in front of you and type with your shoulders relaxed and your elbows close to your body.
- Avoid forceful hand exertions by keeping the mouse close to the keyboard and using keyboard shortcuts to reduce extended use.
- Use a wrist rest to maintain straight wrist postures and to minimize contact stress during typing and mousing tasks.
- When typing, your hands should move freely and be elevated above the wrist rest while typing. When resting, the pad should contact the heel or palm of your hand, not your wrist.
- Document holders and copyholders placed at the same height and distance as the monitor may reduce or eliminate risk factors such as awkward head and neck postures, fatigue, headaches, and eye strain.
- Desk surfaces that are too high or too low may lead to awkward postures, such as extended arms to reach the keyboard, and raised shoulders. Using a foot rest can help alleviate these problems.
- Using a corner rather than a straight run of desk may provide additional space and depth to accommodate large monitors or multiple items
- To avoid back pain and fatigue, choose an office chair with a backrest that conforms to the natural curvature of your spine, and provides adequate lumbar support.
- Armrests that are not adjustable, or those that have not been properly adjusted, may expose you to awkward postures or fail to provide adequate support. Armrests should be soft, allow your shoulders to relax and your elbows to stay close to your body.
