Seated Workstations

The following are ways to improve back safety when sitting in a chair:

  • Sitting with your body at 90-degree angles all the time is not the healthiest way to spend a workday
  • Fixed postures generate fatigue
  • Recline when you can
  • Frequent positional changes are vitally important to good health

The Task Chair

  • Height – feet firmly on the ground or on a footrest
  • Adjust seat pan to allow you to sit all the way back in the chair
  • Adjust backrest height so that the lumbar support is in the curve of your back
  • Adjust the angle of the backrest so that you are comfortably supported
  • Adjust tilt/rock feature to allow movement when you’re performing non-typing tasks
