No matter what a person does at work or at home they need to work smart and be able to do their job without hurting themselves or others. Making small personal changes for yourself can make a big difference in how you feel during work hours and also after work hours. Some of those changes might be to wear better shoes or a support around the lower back area. All employees can become Workplace Ergonomics Experts by attending special meetings at work to ask questions and to hear and see what they can do for themselves and others to make their jobs easier. Employees can also bring their own ideas that they may have thought of, or read about that the company may not have heard about.
Employees who are on their feet all day long need to wear the proper fitted shoes that give their legs, hips and lower back the support they need. Without proper shoe wear a cement floor can have terrible results on a body after working a few days or many years. Employees also need to be careful when lifting heavy objects such as people or large items. When lifting work in twos and work together and learn how to use the proper machinery at work that can be used to lift heavy objects.
Employees who sit all day long need to have a proper chair to sit on, with good back support. Employees who work on a computer all day long need to make sure they have proper typing equipment that supports their hands, arms and shoulders. The desk needs to be at the proper height to avoid strain on the shoulders and lower back area. It is best to get up and walk around for a few minutes to avoid stiffness.
The more we use ergonomics in the workplace and at home the easier our work is going to be and the healthier employees and family are going to stay. Using ergonomics we keep workman’s compensation down, employees have better attendance records and work is done more efficiently.
