Workstation Ergonomics

Fact sheet image

Do you want to be able to adjust your position regularly while you work at a workstation and use your computer? Do you want to reduce the risk of long term injury to your upper limbs, neck or back? A workstation that has been set up correctly with the right equipment can lead to safe and efficient  computer use. Deciding on the right equipment or accessories should consider several factors. These include the physical dimensions of the user, pre-existing injuries or medical conditions, the current workstation equipment, and your intended work tasks. Input from a health professional or occupational therapist is often required to ensure a good fit between the workstation and the person.
