More and more people work in sifferent workplaces. They have, for instance, a workstation in the office, at home and at a client. The problem that this may cause is that you have a workplace that is not good for you. Resulting in an increased risk of RSI, back, neck and shoulder complaints. How do you make sure that you can sit well in every workplace? Here are some tips.
Make sure all your work places a good office chair. The main features of an office chair are: easy height adjustment, backrest that properly supports the back and armrests that support the arms, neck shoulder area and that don’t stand in the way. Often it occurs that the backrest is not good is because it opens to far backwards. Fot VDO work most people benefit from a chair with a straight back and a seat that is tilted slightly backwards to prevent sliding out.
If you have found a good office chair, it would be convenient to have it in every workplace. Unless you don’t mind taken it with you all the time.
Care for a height-adjustable desk, or workstation that at least can be set, at the right height. If you have a workplace shared with one or more colleagues than it is necessary to have an desk that you can adjust in height quickly and easily. There are electric, but there are also desks with a pendulum (the latter is cheaper and equally easy).
Whgereever you sit, make sure that your monitor is at the right height. For this you can use a monitor stand or, for example, a pile of books. Also here it is important that when you share a workstation with others in the workplace, the screen is easily adjustable in height. For example by a adjustable monitor arm.
Before you start to work, take your time to make sure that everything is set properly! Make a bit of a habit out of it. Teach yourself to not to start working before everything is set to your preference. This seems perhaps cumbersome in the beginning, but if you’ve done it a few times, you do it in no time. You can avoid a lot of unnecessary misery.
