Workplace Ergonomics


IN THE SPOTLIGHT
As tax season begins and workdays grow longer, the U.S. Department of Labor’s Occupational Safety & Health Administration recommends maintaining neutral working positions to reduce stress, strain and the risk of workplace injury.

On its computer workstations eTools Web site, OSHA provides the following simple ergonomic guidelines to use when setting up a computer workstation or performing computer-related tasks:

Adjust the top of the monitor to sit at or just below eye level.

Balance head and neck and keep them in line with your torso.

Keep elbows close to your body and supported.

Support your lower back and relax your shoulders.

Make adequate room for the keyboard and mouse.

Rest feet flat on the floor.
