MISSION IMPOSSIBLE: Ergonomics
Many workers who transitioned temporarily to full-time teleworking because of the COVID-19 pandemic didn’t have designated office spaces at home and, six months in, their bodies and productivity are suffering.
Maybe the chair is too low or the table too high or the lamp is just too far away. They’ve tried every imaginable position in every conceivable spot in their homes, and they still end every work day with a new ache or pain.
Is this you or someone you know? Let us help.
Join us as we talk with Julia Abate, the executive director of The Ergonomics Center of North Carolina, and review the neutral postures we want when working from an office setting. We’ll also identify some common causes of discomfort and some low-cost, quick fixes to improving the “temporary” home office.
