Work station ergonomics


Your working environment can have a huge impact on your physical and mental health. Yet many of us are working in uncomfortable conditions without realising we’re putting ourselves at risk. The ongoing lower back pain, the stiff neck, the shoulder that aches after a long day in the office, could all be caused due to poor ergonomic set up.Ergonomics has a massive impact when it comes to reducing the risk of injury in the workplace. Injuries and musculoskeletal disorders are the cause of 90 per cent of serious compensation claims in Australia and poor ergonomic set up is one of the factors that contributes to these alarming statistics.
