Office Ergonomics

The Office Ergonomics module is a comprehensive resource designed to promote healthier work environments. It consists of nine detailed modules, each focusing on a specific aspect of office ergonomics. The modules cover a range of topics including an introduction to ergonomics, understanding musculoskeletal disorders and risks, the importance of working postures and work breaks, workstation setup, the role of the office chair, the use of computer input devices, the positioning of the computer monitor, managing lighting and glare, and maintaining vision health. The final module explores the concept of the “Comfort Zone” in an office setting. To reinforce learning, the program also includes a quiz to test your understanding of the material. This module is a valuable tool for anyone seeking to improve their office environment and work habits for better health and productivity.
