The importance of Proper Workstation Ergonomics
Ergonomics is a science concerned with fitting the job to the worker so that work can be performed safely, comfortably, and effectively.
Humans are simply not designed to sit for long periods of time staring at a computer. While not physically taxing, sedentary work can be the cause of discomfort and injury.
Staring at a monitor all day can lead to eye and neck strain. And moving only selected muscles in the forearms and hands can create poor postures.
In addition to poor posture, the repetitive motion associated with typing and moving the mouse can create additional stress on the body and lead to muscle strain and nerve irritation.
There is no single correct posture or arrangement of components that will fit everyone. However, there are basic design goals that you can put into place when setting up a computer workstation.
How we work makes a big difference in our health. Simple adjustments to your office or home computer workstation can work wonders, making work more comfortable and more productive.
