5.            Reduce Excessive Motions

6.            Minimize Contact Stress

7.            Reduce Excessive Vibration

8.            Provide Adequate Lighting

 

How ergonomic office furniture affects productivity

Ergonomic office furniture improves productivity by designing the workspace to allow for good posture and less physical exertion. Poor ergonomics can lead to fatigue and frustration, which can negatively affect the quality of work that an employee performs. It’s a logical line of thought that if employees aren’t experiencing discomfort and fatigue on a daily basis, they will perform better. not to mention the benefits of reducing turnover, decreasing absenteeism, improving morale and increasing employee involvement. Using ergonomic furniture in a workspace can also significantly reduce costs for employers by systematically reducing the overall risk of employee injury caused by uncomfortable workstations.
