Ergonomics @ Work

At the office, we usually spend the majority of the day generally unconcerned about the posture and position of our bodies while we work. Research says that for every 45 mins of sitting, we need to take a break and stretch for 5 minutes. So if you have a desk that takes care of this, it will be ideal.

Ideal standing position at work

  • The height of the worktop should be set according to your height in such a way that you work without reaching or bending.
  • The forearms should be parallel to the floor.
  • Try to ensure that head, neck and wrists are in relaxed position and not forced up or down to work.
  • The monitor should be at least 16” to 18” (or more depending upon the screen size) in distance from your eye.
  • The keyboard should be adjustable to a comfortable height that it allows the user to type with upper arms relaxed from the shoulder and forearms parallel to the floor.

  • The monitor should be at least 16” to 18” (or more depending upon the screen size) in distance from your eye.
  • The top line of the screen should be at your eye level so that the middle of the screen is approximately 20° downward for relaxed viewing.
  • Your sitting position should be in such a way that the thighs are parallel to the floor, fully supported on the chair & feet on the floor. Use a foot rest for better support.
  • The keyboard should be adjustable to a comfortable height that it allows the user to type with upper arms relaxed from the shoulder and forearms parallel to the floor.
