Poor Ergonomics. Bending and Leaning

MSI Risks

  • Workbench positioned too low: results in bending
  • Legs, feet and back can become tired with static and sustained standing

 

Improved Ergonomics. Standing Upright and Anti-fatigue matting

Improved Ergonomics

  • Use anti-fatigue mat for sustained standing
  • Ergonomics could be further improved by raising the workbench
  • Take micro-breaks: move and stretch
