Safe ergonomics

Safe ergonomics

  • Take regular breaks from your workstation – at least every 30 minutes.
  • Vary tasks so you are not typing for extended periods of time.
  • Change your posture as frequently as you can.
  • Avoid eye strain when using the computer:  focus on an object in the distance at least 20 feet away every 10-15 minutes.
  • Take your lunch break away from your desk.
  • Go for a walk outside for 15-20 minutes every day.
  • Make sure your chair is adjusted to support your lower back – use safe sitting posture.
  • Make sure that your chair is in good working order – do not use a chair that needs maintenance.
  • Switch the computer mouse to the other hand regularly.
  • Place frequently used items near you.
