In a new era of computers many practices in the office have changed, including the way we work. The fact is that generally speaking most of us will be working on a computer for the most part of our working day if we have an office job and since jobs in general require people to be seated for longer periods of time we have seen a new influx of work related injuries.
Now we have moved into an era of complete computerisation we have also yet to see the full impact of work strain injuries that this new generation of workers will endure.
Ergonomics means choosing office furniture that won’t give you back, eye, shoulder and wrist strain.
Most firms are completely aware of health and safety regulations in the office including ergonomic issues being important when it comes to office furniture items; they know that if their employees are not comfortable at work they won’t be productive.
Unfortunately it took a number of years growing numbers of workers taking sick days due to aches and pains before the realisation set in that aspects of office accessories and office furniture would need to change to reduce these problems. However, many workers and employees know that the key to a painless future is an ergonomic office chair.
