Workplace Ergonomics Email Challenge
How is Your Work Affecting Your Body?
Have you heard of ergonomics? The term took off in the 1990s and currently refers to the science of designing the workplace designed with the capabilities and limitations of employees in mind. The human body can’t work the same way that machines do—we need breaks, we need to stretch, and our eyes get tired from staring at computer screens all day.
By increasing your awareness of existing and potential ergonomic issues in the office, you can improve not only physical comfort but productivity over time too.
Whether you’re an employee who wants to learn more about how to combat the potential effects of ergonomic issues, or you’re in a management position, and you’re looking for better ways to improve your workplace, this challenge is an excellent resource for you!

Practice Better Habits While Contributing to the Bottom Line
By making improvements to the work process and environment, you’re removing barriers to maximize safe work performance, providing employees with a job that’s within their body’s capabilities, and contributing to your company’s bottom line.
According to the United States Occupational Safety and Health Administration (OSHA), musculoskeletal disorders like carpal tunnel, chronic back pain, herniated discs account for over one-third of lost-time injuries and every $1 in $3 spent on workers’ compensation costs.
In other words, taking these preventative measures will pay off in the long run.
Throughout this series, we’ll explore ergonomic risk factors, learn prevention methods, and discuss the best ways that YOU can create a safe work environment that supports your body instead of depleting it.
