Ergonomics is all about the science of matching the work to the worker. This includes having the proper workstation design for an employee. It increases comfort, morale, job satisfaction and work productivity. Here are general ergonomic tips for employees.
When sitting, adjust your chair’s height so both your feet touch the floor. If not, use a footrest.
Adjust the lumbar support of the chair to support the curve in your low back. It needs to follow the normal S curve of the spine for maximum comfort.
Use the backrest of the chair for support to prevent muscle discomfort and fatigue. Avoid working in the forward position, or sitting on the edge of the seat without back support.
Ensure that your ear is in line with your shoulder, chin in.
Your forearms should be alongside your body, elbows at 90 degrees when using the keyboard and mouse. Wrists are in a straight line and not bent. Support arms with armrests.
