Ergonomic office furniture
We believe it is very important to have ergonomic office furniture in your office environment. Probably the most important item of office furniture is the office chair! Working in an office typically involves spending a great deal of time sitting which can lead to the user adopting awkward positions, this can result in discomfort and backache. Therefore, to avoid developing back problems, it’s important to have ergonomic office furniture including the office chair to support the back and promote good posture.
It is in practical to drop everything and rush out to replace all your existing furniture with ergonomic office furniture but a good place to start is with an ergonomic office chair. Don’t just buy the first one you see!
When choosing seating you should consider the needs of the individual and the type of work being carried out. What suits one member of staff may not necessarily suit another! For this reason you should allow the end user to try out different styles before any selection is made.
Ergonomic seating, adjusted and used correctly can improve the health and well-being of you and your staff and hopefully reduce absenteeism.
No matter which type of ergonomic office chair you choose, prolonged sitting is not good. So, short breaks should also be taken throughout the day. Getting up from the chair from time to time to stretch and walk around will improve posture and circulation as well as reduce fatigue.
