Office Furniture to Create a Positive Workplace

July 30, 2013

Your office can have a big effect on your physical and mental well-being. The right environment can be a great place to work, while the wrong one can cause you an untold number of problems. Furniture at work complaints are one of the biggest reasons why people don’t like their working environment, and correcting these problems can make a world of difference.

Funiture at work complaints need to be taken seriously because full-time workers tend to spend around eight hours in their office. The wrong chair can give you lower back pain, a poorly elevated desk might lead to carpal tunnel syndrome due to a lack of wrist support, and the wrong monitor or position of the monitor can cause eye and neck strain.

Resolve these problems by making sure you have the correct chair for your body type. You should sit at the back of the chair and the front should be just behind your knees (which should be level with your hips). If this isn’t the case for you, then discuss with your office manager about changing your chair for a better size. The height of your chair should leave you with full support for your wrists through your arm being bent at a right angle and your forearm then being at the same height as the desk. If this means that your feet can’t sit flat on the floor, then you will also need a footrest, and a rocking footrest can be good for increasing circulation when sedentary.

Your monitor should be in a position where you can view it comfortably, although zoom settings will help if needed. The top of the monitor should be in line with your eyes for optimum comfort when viewing. Most monitors have adjustable stands, but if using a laptop you may need an additional stand for the best position.
