Office ergonomics can help you be more comfortable at work, lower stress, and reduce the chance of injuries caused by awkward positions and repetitive tasks.
Setting up your work space
If you sit at your desk in an awkward position or for a long period, you may suffer pain, discomfort or an injury. Typical injuries include sprains and strains of the neck, back, shoulders, wrists or hands. In order to minimise these risks, it is important to have a good workstation design, layout and setup as well as having a variety of tasks and opportunities to move around throughout the day.
Refer to the ergonomic guide below for advice on how to set up your computer workstation to suit your needs and the type of work you're doing.
