As the way we work continues to change, the ergonomic risks workers face are multiplying. In the past, most employers only needed to concern themselves with the dedicated workspaces in the office. Now, with increasing numbers of employees largely (or wholly) working from home, the landscape is more complicated.
Repetitive strain injuries, back pain, eye strain, and fatigue are all potentially serious complications that come from an improperly set up workspace, poor posture habits, improper seating, and long hours without getting up and letting the body move. Left unchecked, they can have a drastic impact on employee health, quality of life, and productivity.
