Ergonomics Can Help!

Do you sit at a computer for most or part of your day?  Poor ergonomics (a badly designed work environment) can contribute to fatigue, headaches, and musculoskeletal injuries. To learn how you can improve your workstation ergonomically, check out the new Employee Injury Prevention webpage. Be sure to watch the step-by-step video and checklist on the website about setting up your workstation to improve comfort and efficiency.

You’ll also benefit from taking frequent stretch breaks throughout the day. Click here to print out the new “Get Up and Stretch” pamphlet.

The next time you get up to grab that cup of coffee, do a few stretches for a real pick-me-up!
