Get your ergonomics right

ergonomic self-assessment checklistWe are in a bit of a trap with technology. It all looks so easy and doable and we forget we are humans with biological parts which can show wear and tear. The Ergonomic Times keeps you up to date on what is happening in the area of ergonomics and technology but it also makes you aware we have at least learned. There are people now doing research on trying to get it right for us with touch screens and newer devices and our interactions with these devices before we get to the stage where we suffer strain and injury. In the industrial era the machines were big and imposing with movable parts and so it was obvious that we would need to protect ourselves as we used this equipment. It is not so obvious with technology. Productive Writers has a very good post about the ergonomics of sitting and writing and the picture makes it crystal clear about what you need to address. Dohrmann Consulting has a checklist for office ergonomics but other information about keeping yourself healthy and well as you engage with technology as part of your daily living. In 2015 part of what you have to do is look out for yourself and take responsibility for your own health and welfare. The University of Melbourne has a comprehensive self-assessment checklist for ergonomics. If you work through it you will not only get feedback about what you can improve for yourself , it will also highlight anything which needs to be addressed on the workspace. Consistency and clarity of thought will help us sustain a healthy, workable relationship with technology and it’s good to know we have so many researchers looking out for us.

  1. […] courtesy of The Ergonomic Times which is worth keeping up to date with. I regularly blog about ergonomics because we use different devices. They absorb us and then we may forget what that is doing to us. […]
