Ergonomics Tips to Reduce Pain and Have Better Posture

A recent study reveals that when properly executed, ergonomics programs can be helpful in reducing employee injury. If you have back pain, painful wrists or tired eyes, maybe it’s time to rethink your desk set-up. The studies looked at an office ergonomics program and how it helped to control muscular injuries at work.  


The program incorporated better furniture as well as educating employees on office ergonomics and proper seating form at their desk. It was found that since the initiation of the program, there was a reduction in office cumulative work-related disorders by 53 percent, while the absenteeism and transfer rate decreased by 41 percent. Sometimes simply rearranging your office layout can help you avoid a visit to the doctor.
