Office ergonomics. Measurements for success.
AAOHN J. 1999 Oct; 47(10):479-91; quiz 492-3.AJ

Abstract

The successful implementation of an ergonomics program requires collecting data on worksite history repetitive motion injuries and assessing the corporate ergonomic needs. It is important to solicit management, department, and employee support. Program success depends on creating process, training program, skilled assessors, and an accountability method. A thorough understanding and application of neutral posture and the three seated chair positions is essential. Evaluation of the entire individual work-space is essential. Precise measurements of the individual, the office chair, and the work surfaces should be completed, and heights adjusted to meet individual needs. Functional, totally adjustable office chairs are a necessity. Vendor selection criteria and vendor contracts for chairs and office equipment assure consistent specifications and cost control.
