    Your Time At Work

    Question 1
    It appears you are one of the ever increasing number of flexible location workers. Please check out this link to find out more about what solutions are available to you to work smarter and safer.

    Question 2-4
    Keep Assessing!! workstation assessment is not only an employers legal obligation under (EU Directive 90/270/EEC) but it is also best practice for you and your company. For existing employees you should have an assessment every 3 years or when there is a change in the working environment, such as new equipment or a change in the users' daily job function and all new employees should have one. So thank you for carrying out this assessment and don't forget to tell your colleagues and friends about the need to assess your desk!

    Your Workstation

    Question 1
    Your monitor screen is not in an ergonomic, risk free position. Adjustments to your monitor position will improve your comfort. Position monitor so that your eyes are level with the top of the monitor frame. Adjust the height of your monitor using a monitor riser. Avoid leaning towards the monitor and ensure you are at a viewing distance should of around 45-91cm away from the screen.

    Adjusting your position relative to the keyboard and mouse can help you be more comfortable and productive whilst reducing the risk of workstation injury. Avoid bending your hands up at the wrist when typing, wrists should remain at a similar height to the keyboard and mouse. Forearms should always be parallel to the floor and the bottom of the elbow should also be level with the home row of the keyboard. Use a keyboard wrist rest and mouse pad wrist rest for comfort and support. Always use a separate keyboard with a laptop.

    Optimizing your desktop layout by utilizing appropriate desktop accessories can help to decrease the stress put on your spine by stretching and twisting to reach things. It will also make you work more productively.

    Question 2-4
    You will benefit from improving your posture while sitting. Avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time. Utilise a well positioned lumbar / back support and maintain correct body posture by keeping thighs parallel to the floor.

    Question 5
    Ensuring your feet are at the right height and your legs in the right position can enhance circulation in your legs. Ensure adequate space from the back of the knee to the seat pan (minimum of 50mm). Use correct seat height, thighs should be parallel with the floor, feet flat and knees level with the hips. Wherever possible avoid sitting in the same position for long periods of time. Many Fellowes footrests have a rocking motion to support your legs and encourage movement improving the circulation.

    Your Environment

    Question 1-4
    If your environment is less than ideal, consider options for improving your situation, such as temperature, lighting and cleanliness. Regular cleaning of all office equipment kills germs, eliminates static, improves screen clarity and keeps workstations dust and dirt free. Consider our Virashield cleaning range which is 99.9% effective against germs and viruses. We also offer a range of products that contain Microban, an antimicrobial protection to help keep your working environment clean and safe from bacteria. Ensure that the temperature is at a comfortable level and that your workstation is well lit without glare or reflections.

    Question 5
    Working with your laptop on your knee can be bad for your health and cause discomfort; purchase a laptop riser to work safer, easier and keep your laptop positioned safely.
