Essential Ergonomic Solutions for Any Workplace

When it comes to ergonomics, we often talk about challenges pertaining to workers in traditional office settings. However, staff in manufacturing facilities and healthcare settings, for example, deal with many of the same issues and challenges found in these workplaces. Multi-tasking while combining periods of physical work with periods of computer work is often the norm for these workers. Fortunately, ergonomics can play an invaluable role in keeping them healthy and productive at work.

Start with These Ergonomic Essentials

Supporting a productive, injury-free staff in any facility means equipping them with ergonomic tools that are adjustable and designed to accommodate the wide range of body sizes and shapes. As a start, ergonomists recommend equipping your industrial and healthcare staff with the following ergonomic solutions:

 Stools and Seating 
Durability, support, mobility, and maximum adjustability are required to accommodate staff of varying heights and weight

 Height Adjustable Desks and Workstations
Accommodates staff of all heights and allows for seated work option too

 Monitor Arms and Monitor Risers 
Allow for easy adjustability for each worker, helping to reduce eye and neck strain

 Keyboards and Keyboard Support Systems 
Ergonomic keyboard/keyboard trays adjustable to the correct height for each worker help keep wrists straight and elbows open slightly beyond 90 degrees, whether sitting or standing

 Task Lighting 
Accurately reading reports and other paper documents requires optimum task-specific light without the glare and reflection caused by overhead lighting schemes

 Anti-Fatigue Matting 
Reduces standing fatigue, improves productivity, and helps prevent slips and falls.
