September 25, 2009, Newsletter Issue #52: Ergonomics: Workstation Setup

Tip of the Week

What the setup is like inside a Web design studio or graphic design company can make a big difference when it comes to your body and how it feels. If you haven't yet overhauled your workstation to make sure you are set up well ergonomically; now is the time. Here are some tips on how to make the most of things while being kind to your limbs:

Use a headset if you are on the phone a good deal.Make sure that frequently used items are easy to access and use.Use your mouse at the same level as your keyboard.Try to keep your wrists in a neutral position, not bent.Change positions often and rest your eyes frequently.One very important thing to remember is that if you are feeling pain anywhere, you may be developing a repetitive stress injury (RPI) from overuse or improper use. If you find something is bothering you, take a look at the tasks you're doing and setup you have for that part of your body to see if you can make any healthy changes or adjustments.
