Ergonomic Workstations for Mobile Employees
January 7, 2010 - Contact FacilitiesNet Editorial Staff »
With so many organizations implementing mobile work programs, facility executives should be sure to offer appropriate and ergonomic systems furniture.
Many people with different job descriptions may need to use the same workstation when they come into the office. Therefore, it's necessary to accommodate different body types and work styles.
Desk, chair and table top heights should all be adjustable to accommodate employees of all heights. Accessories such as monitor arms, keyboard trays and file holders should all be adjustable or removable altogether. Furniture manufacturers are aware of the growing number of mobile office workers and are offering systems furniture with smaller footprints, more options and integrated electrical and IT systems.
