Do you tend to do the same sorts of repetitive tasks everyday?
If you work in front of a computer, you’re at risk of repetitive strain injury, or RSI. This refers to a range of physical injuries, mostly to the parts of your body you use to type or roll your mouse. RSI can also be caused by bad posture and incorrect office workstation setup.
It’s also completely preventable.
Don’t wait until the aches and pains begin. Courtesy of Britain’s NHS website, here’s some simple and practical tips to set up your office workstation and reduce your risk.
The most important advice is to take regular breaks and to have your chair adjusted to the correct height. The best solution is to have one of our ergonomic consultants come to your workplace to conduct an office ergonomics assessment or to deliver an Ergonomics Training course. Ask us about our on-site physiotherapists, who work specifically with your staff to minimise workplace injuries. Our ergonomics consultants are available in Sydney, Melbourne Brisbane and in other cities throughout Australia.
