Drysdale Osteopathy • Ergonomics and Work Station Assessment
People working in an office environment often have very poorly thought outworking positions.
Their chairs and desks are not set up properly, keyboards and mice can be in the wrong position. After a short time they will develop bad posture which leads to headaches, shoulder and arm tension, low back pain and enentually Repetative Strain Injuries.
When I discuss this with patients, they will say they have had a work station assessment, and been given a new chair.
The problem is that little attention is paid to the optimum desk height, distance of face from computer screen, type of keyboard and mouse that's being used and the size of computer screen.
There are a number of novel ways of rearranging a persons working position that will make them far more comfortable.
Companies such as Osmond Ergonomics supply excellent ergonomically designed products.
The person will then be comfortable, be able to breath more easily and feel relaxed in their new working position.
In the long term the person will have less aches and pains, and become far more productive.
Work Station Assessment is all carried out in accordance with Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.
