Dying to Sit Down?
“Ergonomics is the scientific discipline concerned with the understanding of interactions among humans and other elements of a system, and the profession that applies theory, principles, data and methods to design in order to optimise human well-being and overall system performance.” International Ergonomics Association.
Office work is diverse, with jobs ranging from those that demand a high level of skill and knowledge to those where the worker has little control over their work or the organisation of their working day, such as call centre and data processing work. Although widely regarded as low risk environments, the large (and growing) proportion of employees who work in office or home office environments means that a significant number of workers are potentially exposed to any risks to their health that might arise.
With attention to workstation ergonomics, productivity or output can increase by up to 30%! The return on a small investment can be ‘significant’ and can often be seen in as little as 1 month. An increase in efficiency results in higher productivity and profitability but also the benefits for the body when we are able to work in both standing and seated positions, directly impacts health, minds and the body. Supporting employees in being more productive, is the counterpart of firing employees to be able to cut costs!
