The hidden costs of cumulative trauma injuries can be damaging to your businesses. Avoidable injuries such as carpal tunnel syndrome and back strain cut into workers' productivity, sometimes forcing employees to miss work or change careers altogether. In fact, experts estimate that the hidden costs of cumulative trauma injuries are two to seven times as great as the visible costs.
Well designed Offices not only make workers more productive and happy, but also healthier. Cubicles can be expanded as the needs of a business grow, and it comes in a huge variety of configurations, colors, and styles. Office desks, conference tables, reception desks, ergonomic task chairs, efficient filing systems, printer stands and computer stations, complete workstations and cubicles; all of these modular office furniture pieces and arrangements are enhancing the office landscape into a healthier environment of efficiency and peace.
With that in mind, try these five ways to improve the ergonomics of your office:
- 1. Review the Ergonomic Set Up of your Computer Workstation.
- 2. Always use an Ergonomic Chair.
- 3. Keep muscles fresh by taking frequent breaks.
- 4. Ensure document flow.
- 5. If you or an employee experience physical discomfort at work, act immediately.
