The buzz around ergonomics has been steadily growing in recent years, and it’s no mystery why. The benefits of an office space that promotes proper alignment of the spine include freedom from physical discomfort as well as a boost in productivity. Some people, however, are still unclear on what “ergonomic” actually means and why it would benefit the office workers of Overland Park.
Ergonomics is the applied science of designing and arranging items in an office so that the worker can interact with them in the most safe and efficient manner. With office-related products, designing for both comfort and function is critical to creating the freedom and security from physical ailments for workers who are required to sit for hours at a time. Liberation from work-related physical maladies enables the desk worker to remain focused and alert. This can improve productivity and efficiency in the work place.
How to create proper ergonomics in your work spaceA number of factors work together to create proper ergonomics in your place of work. From full-body positioning to details like lighting, the ergonomic office promotes both the personal physical health of the worker and the efficiency and output of the business.
• Introducing stand-up desks to your workspace can create opportunities for the worker to switch positions and engage their legs throughout the day, promoting muscle use and improving circulation.
• Ergonomic desk chairs support the body in a neutral position, ensuring proper alignment of the spine and relieving pressure on the spinal disks. Full-body circulation is improved, and strain on the neck, back, and shoulders is reduced.
• Ergonomic footrests promote proper full-body posture by alleviating pressure on the lower back. Dynamic footrests encourage leg activity and create options for movement.
• Keyboard trays reduce stress on one of the most often-injured joints: the wrists. By bringing the computer keyboard to a comfortable angle, the wrists are not strained and typing for hours a day becomes more comfortable and pain-free.
• Proper office lighting can create a peaceful ambiance and improve productivity and morale in your place of work. Neutral white lighting eases strain on the eyes, and helps the worker focus on the task at hand.
• Full office workstations demonstrate how the numerous parts work together in harmony to create a comfortable, efficient place of operation.
