How can Ergonomic Furniture improve Workplace Safety for your Aging Workforce?

Office Workforce Safety

As you may notice, the demographics of the workforce are quickly changing. More and more American workers are experiencing health problems,particularly related to obesity and aging. How can you reduce the physical strain your office environment puts on your aging workforce?

One of the best ways to tackle this ever growing issue is to utilize high quality ergonomic furniture because more and more retirees tend to work in some capacity outside of traditional work environments to keep them financially stable as well as physically and mentally healthy.

To make sure your office environment is as safe as possible for aging employees, you should hire a professional interior designer to evaluate your work environment and identify how you can best accommodate an aging workforce. Aging employees experience muscle weakness, less  joint mobility and take longer to react to work environments.

Ergonomic furniture can reduce work fatigue and keep your workers comfortable. When your employees can focus on their work duties rather than physical discomfort,  they are more productivity and less likely to be absent from work.

Here are some furniture recommendations and features you may want to include in your workplace environment:

  • Ergonomic grip designs to reduce stress on joints and hands
  • Ergonomic workstations to maintain good  movement for prolonged static positioning
  • Ergonomic office chairs for good lumbar support

The more at ease you can make cross work functionality for your aging workforce,the better.

How can I make my Office Desk work for me?

Ergonomic Work Desk

Are you feeling a bit dissatisfied with your workspace? You can make your work environment more attractive to you by transforming your office desk to an ideal work desk. How can you do it? We are here to share some pointers with you on office design and remodeling to help you design a more pleasant workspace.

The ideal office desk is one that’s tailored to the user’s needs. When a desk user is uncomfortable at any type of workstation, work productivity plummets. From a fast typing speed to a low error rate, you will want to keep your work efficiency as high as possible. By sitting at the wrong type of desk, you can also lower the quality of your health and wellness. Many office workers complain that they experience physical tension in areas of the neck, shoulders, lower back and wrist. Carpal tunnel syndrome is the most common work related energy. There is a consensus that comfortably seated workers can increase work performance by 10 – 15 percent.

This is why it’s a good idea to invest in ergonomic furniture. There are a variety of ergonomic desk and ergonomic chairs available so you won’t have to ignore bodily pains that make it difficult to perform your work duties.

If a desk makes you hunch over,  you need to purchase a desk that places your computer monitor at eye level. Your keyboard should be at the height of your elbows.

Next, purchase an office chair that reduces pressure on your lower back and behind. An adjustable ergonomic chair is your best option for reducing pressure while keeping your feet to the ground.

Ergonomic furniture works well for both private and open office space. You just have to identify what works best for you. Edwards & Hill Office Furniture is here as your interior designer and office furniture consultant. We want you to work in an environment that’s comfortable for you.

By maintaining a comfortable workspace, you will  help yourself be ready for good business opportunities because you’ll have the energy to get things done accurately and efficiently. We want you to optimize all your business skills by keeping your physically compatible for your job. Browser our office furniture lines to get started on finding your ideal desk.
