Workplace Ergonomics


A large part of the day you are sitting at your workplace. Therefore, we think the configuration of your workplace is important, especially when it comes to ergonomics. By this we mean a comfortable work space where you can work safely and healthily. When you are doing the same kind of work for a long period of time, physical symptoms can occur. Sitting in the wrong chair or with an incorrect posture can also cause symptoms. Mind you, this is also your own responsibility. Sit straight, with your feet on the ground and your arms relaxed. Regularly changing position or occasionally moving also helps in preventing complaints. Also take a look here: http://arbocataloguscontactcenters.nl/handleiding-werkplekinstelling/.
