Fact sheet image

In the workplace the appropriate set up of workstations is essential, particularly for workers who are seated for long periods of time. Correctly adjusted and positioned equipment is important for safe and efficient use of a computer. Incorrectly set up workstations may lead to muscle strain and adds to the risk of developing musculoskeletal conditions such as Occupational Overuse Syndrome. It is important to use good work pacing techniques and take breaks often. (See fact sheet Workplace Modification and Techniques)
