Improved Workplaces Lead to Better Performance
No two business operations and no two employees are the same.
The need to design for fexibility and adjustability
Industrial business processes are often multi-shift, multi-operator environments. When designing workstations for these situations, we have to keep several important ergonomic rules in mind, and design for flexibility and adjustability.
FIVE IMPORTANT RULES FOR WORKSTATIONS
- Optimize Position
- Eliminate Extreme Movements
- Minimize Forces and Repetition
- Order and Color Coding
- Optimize Lighting
Examples of Ergonomically Designed Workstations
adjustable monitor arm
keyboard tray with mouse pad
touch of a button
Eliminate Extreme Movement
The opposite of an optimized neutral posture is extreme movements or awkward postures. When you move away from the optimized position toward extremes in the range of motion, you create ergonomic risk. When we work with you on an ergonomic workstation design for your operation, we pay attention to your workflow and minimize these extreme motions. Take a look at the short video demonstrating the BOSTONtec solution for building large boxes while minimizing extreme motions, following an important ergonomic rule.
