Office ergonomics

Sitting at desks for most of the day shouldn’t mean that you need to put up with a tired and sore body. Correct ergonomics – including correct chair height and good desk posture – can help you and your joints stay comfortable at work.

The University has a number of online sources of information to assist you in giving your workstation a much needed makeover, so what are you waiting for? Get started today!

The first step on your way to a healthy work space is to review your set up. A WORKSTATION ASSESSMENT can be performed a number of ways:

  1. Complete the Office Ergonomics Essentials module on Pulse. All staff are required to complete this module.
  2. Perform a Self-Assessment checklist (no need to hand this in as it is just a guide for your own use)
  3. Make use of Occupational Strains Liaison Officer network and have an OSLO officer assist you. They can assess workstation set-ups for staff and provide general advice on ergonomics issues including workstation configurations, chair, footrest and desk adjustments.

If you need some GUIDANCE and RESOURCES, take a look at these useful documents

  1. Setting up a computer workstation
  2. Office chair selection and sitting well
  3. Sit Stand Workstations

And finally, consider adopting some HEALTHY HABITS to ensure you able to work most effectively

  1. Posture breaks are recommended every 30 mins throughout the day. Do you have workrave? Or Time Out (Macs). One of the key things to remember is to get up and move regularly.
  2. Another thing to consider is our own Wellbeing as we get back to routines and what strategies we can implement transitioning back to campus.

We have more exciting things planned for the CBE HR Wellbeing program this year. Make sure you check our calendar of events for updates!
