Setup - Do you have an ergonomic setup?

Last updated by CamillaSilva about 4 years ago.See history

An ergonomic setup ensures that you are using your computer in a way that will not injure or strain you in any way. As you will likely be sitting/standing at your desk for up to 8 hours it is crucial to not become complacent with the layout of your desk.

Tips to remember when reviewing your desk:

  • Eyes should be level with the top of the screen
  • Eyes should be an arms length away from the screen
  • Upper legs should be parallel to the ground
  • Feet should be either flat on the ground or on a slightly angled foot rest
  • Shoulders and arms should be parallel to the ground
  • Lower back should have support
  • You should be able to comfortably sit up straight
