Office ergonomics: Protect your back #5502

A factory or construction site is not the only type of workplace where you can become injured. You can also experience an injury in an office environment. In fact, sprains and strains are the leading types of on- the- job injuries, no matter the type of workplace. Your back is likely most at risk, regardless of your work setting.

To avoid injuring your back at the office, try these tips.
If you sit for a long period of time, make sure your chair supports your back. If the chair does not support your lower back’s curve, place a rolled towel or small pillow behind your lower back. Also, remove any bulky objects from your back pockets. They can disrupt the balance in your lower back.

On average, take a 30 second timeout to stretch or move for every 15 minutes you spend sitting in the same place

Pay attention to office space ergonomics. If you work at a computer, make sure that your monitor and chair are positioned properly.

Use good form when lifting, ever if the object is relatively light. Keep the object close to your body and let your legs do the work. If the load is too heavy to lift on your own, get some help.

Remove anything from your workspace that might cause you or someone else to trip and fall.
