Work From Home: Ergonomics | Wellness Resource Guide

Feeling healthy as an enormous impact on your work. Please consider ergonomics when setting up your at-home workspace.

Neutral Posture

Do your best to setup your at home workspace to best support healthy neutral posture with arms and legs at 90 degree angles.

Screen Time

Give your eyes a break. Use the 20/20/20 eye exercise. For every 20 minutes of work, look at an object at least 20 feet away for 20 seconds.

Light Source

When working with a screen, try to decrease unnecessary eye strain. Refrain from having a light source directly in front or behind you.

Keyboard Positioning

Keep your keyboard flat or at a negative tilt to reduce unnecessary tension in your hands, arms, and upper body.

Leverage Zone

Keep the items you need close to you. Limit your need to unnecessarily reach or undertake unnatural repetitive movement.

Take Breaks

For every 20-30 minutes of seated work, make a conscious effort to stand up, move around, and stretch.
