“Ergonomics” is the science of designing the workstation to fit within the capabilities and limitations of the worker. Office ergonomics is designing your office work station so that it fits you and allows for a comfortable working environment for maximum productivity and efficiency.

When you are looking at furniture, cubicles, and seating for your office you want to ask yourself a few things. You want to think from top to bottom or the “head, fingers, knees and toes” concept.

Let’s start at the top. Your head does many things from talking in person with customers to personal phone calls with clients. You want to ergonomically be using a headset for calls if possible and a phone that doesn’t cause an individual to jam their neck. Check with your office furniture retailer for conference call phones and headsets. Remember when your Mom said, “Stand up straight?” Well regarding ergonomics you want to be sitting straight and not slouching. Proper lumbar support keeps a healthy and pain free neck, back and spine. Ergonomically correct chairs come in many colors, styles and fashions these days and can fit a in a modern office space or a traditional space.

Herman Miller Aeron B ChairsMake sure that the weight of your arms is supported at all times when using the computer keyboard. Watching your head position, and trying to keep the weight of your head directly above the base of the neck, will cause less strain.

Computer screens and monitors should be placed directly in front of you and eye level. This eliminates your neck from making awkward turns and your neck, shoulders, and arms. If your screen is too close or too far it could cause eye strain. Keep approximately at arm’s length away. Your local office furniture company or computer store can assist with sizes of monitors, screens and models.

Finally your feet. Did you ever notice where your feet are? Do they dangle? Your feet should never dangle when you are seated. If your feet don’t comfortably reach the floor use a footrest, or something to rest your feet comfortably. Office furniture companies usually carry a range of accessories to assist all offices from footstools, additional lighting that might be needed at the desk areas, cubicles to provide the privacy of the employees, and even artwork.

Then best recommendation when trying to accommodate your office ergonomically is to speak with your local retail office furniture company. Ask them these questions and ask them to show you their recommendations from head to toe!
