Workstation Setup

  • Site in front of your workstation such that your monitor is directly front on.
  • Your arms should be at right angles from your shoulders when you type
  • Your wrists should be in line with your forearms, both horizontally and vertically
  • Your keyboard should be flat
  • the top of your monitor should be level with your eys
  • Do not sit too close to your monitor – at least an arms length away
  • Ensure your seat is properly adjusted
  • If your feet don’t reach teh ground, use a foot rest.
  • Do not reach too far for your mouse, keep it close to your keyboard and support your arm on the desk when using your mouse
  • Use a document holder attached to the site of the monitor
  • Take regular breaks every hour, stretch your legs and perform simple mobility exercises to limber
  • Optimal Chair Setup
    Correct seating posture is an essential ingredient to preventing spinal injury and fatigue. The basic features of a good chair are :
    • height adjustable
    • pelvic tilt on seat
    • lumbar support
    • Adjust the height of your chair such that your knees are level or just below hip height and that your feet are flat on the floor.
    • If your seat has a pelvic tilt, this should be set to a slight forward incline to promote a natural inward lower back curve.
    • Move the lumbar support so that it fits snuggly into the curve of your lower back. This will help to prevent lumbar strain and helps to maintain a straight spine and neck whilst seated.
    • Never sit with your legs crossed! Crossing at the ankles is a preferable alternative.
