Further to our blog post on correct seating posture whilst in the office our Gophers have found an interesting section on the Fellowes website site offering some more information and valuable resources.
According to Professor Ergo (“a leading worldwide authority on workstation ergonomics”) seventy percent of workers have experienced or suffered from an ailment or injury associated with an inappropriate workspace environment within the previous three years. He also states that 80% of us will experience some type of back problem or pain during our lives.
Another interesting point is we spend 46.5 minutes as day fidgeting at our desks, this Professor Ergo states “we waste 22.3 days per year fidgeting.” I’m sure Professor Ergo is correct on this with regards us humans, however I know our Gophers fidget much more than this!
Other resources Professor Ergo has on his site include, The Ideal Office – Practical advice to achieve your perfect office, and a rather useful workstation assessment. You do however have to part with your name and email address to receive your free assessment.
