Meetings & Conventions: Short Cuts January 2001
Short Cuts:BETTER YET
Is your workstation ergonomically
correct? If not, long hours sitting awkwardly in front of the
computer can result in painful ailments. Following are some smart
moves from the experts at www.ergoweb.com and www.office-ergo.com.
Sit up straight. The right chair can make all
the difference. Your feet should rest flat on the floor, and your
back should be flush to the chair's back. To avoid holding your
arms at an odd angle, keep the armrests level with the computer
Go the distance. The computer monitor should be
placed at arm's length from your chair.
Be bright about it. A well-lit workspace is key
to preventing eyestrain. Also, look up from the monitor
periodically and focus on something far in the distance.
Move. Get up and stretch. Take a few quick
breaks throughout the day.
