10 Ergonomic Tips For Your Workstation


You do not have to wait for your employer to implement an office-wide ergonomics program to begin improving the level of comfort, efficiency and productivity you experience while at your workstation. Adopting a few easy ergonomic tips can improve your workplace satisfaction, while minimizing your risk of developing a repetitive stress injury.

Ergonomic tips that you can begin using right now:

1 – Move your office task chair up and down a few inches several times throughout the day to give your body a different working position.

2 – Use the 20/20/20 rule. Every 20 minutes look away from your computer screen at a spot approximately 20 feet away for 20 seconds. For more tips on ways to avoid eye strain, refer to the “Quick Tips to Avoid Eye Strain” article.

3 – Lean back in your chair and let it support your back. If you are leaning forward to see your computer screen you are not using proper ergonomic positioning.

4- Implement the Ergonomics Equation into the time you spend sitting at a computer.

5 – Keep your elbows at 90 degree angles and make sure your wrists are not tilted up when typing. For proper positioning, keep them at a slight negative tilt or neutral position.

6 – When using your mouse make controlled mouse movements using your elbow as the pivot point and keep your wrist straight and neutral.

7 – Good room lighting is important to help prevent eye strain. Adjust your monitor to avoid reflections or glares on the screen surface.

7 – If your work requires you to refer to a print document while computing your should use a document holder. Place it at about the same height and distance as the monitor screen. This will mean little head movement, or need for your eyes to re-focus when you look from the document to the screen.

8 – Use task lights to reduce dilation of eyes between tasks, which will reduce eyestrain. Task lighting can reduce CVS (computer vision syndrome) symptoms including eyestrain, headaches, and fatigue.

9 – Consider a foot rest. A footrest may not seem like a key ergonomic accessory, but incorporating a footrest does provide some great ergonomic benefits. It promotes movement and it also supports the legs, which can relieve pressure from the lower back, or help to support the legs for a shorter user.

10 – Don’t wait. If you are uncomfortable while working, address it now by assessing your working position and/or requesting proper ergonomic office furniture and accessories, before it turns into a major health issue down the road.
