The way we sit, stand and move at our computer workstation can have a direct correlation to back, neck, arm and hand injuries. Often, minor adjustments in posture, furniture and reducing the duration of time spent performing a single task can minimize the risk for such injuries. With the time spent using computers at work and at home continuing to grow, it is important that everyone has basic knowledge of ergonomic principles related to the computer workstation.
Please review the OSHA self assessment tool for computer workstations located at the link below. If issues are noted and cannot be easily corrected, bring them to the attention of your supervisor. As always, TEHS is available for further assistance.
