Ergonomics Makes Economic Sense

RSI or Repetitive Stress Injury is the major workplace injury of the last half century, and the problem has progressively worsened as employees are spending more time in front of their computer and less time moving around.


How to Choose an Ergonomic Chair

Before you make a decision on any ergonomic equipment, ensure you speak to the specialists. There are many things to consider. Take, for instance, an ergonomic chair to help protect the spines of employees:

  1. Does the seat pan feel comfortable and fit to your shape?
  2. Is the chair height adjustable?
  3. Is the range of height adjustment sufficient to meet the needs of all users?
  4. Does the chair have a comfortable lumber back rest?
  5. Is the chair back rest large enough to provide good back support?
  6. When you sit back against the lumber support is there enough hip room?
  7. Does the chair backrest recline and support your back in different positions?
