for Preventing Neck Pain at Work
Work Station Setup
Head & Neck Posture
Sustained poor posture increases tension on joints, muscles, ligaments and discs, which can become painful
The rule is simple:
For every minute of immobility, perform one second of movement based activity.
Ex: After 30' of work, take 30s to head to the copier or water fountain for a change in position
Can be 20/20, 30/30 or 60/60
Pick what works for you!
A straight line connecting your trunk, shoulders and your ears
• With your arms resting at your sides, your elbows should be slightly higher than your desk/keyboard to prevent the shoulders from “shrugging” up.
• Your screen distance and font size should be appropriate for you so that you do not push your head forward towards the screen or squint to see the text.
• Your mouse should be close to your keyboard and your body to prevent neck tension from reaching forward.
