Safely Working From Home
Given the new normal of businesses and government striving to maintain services while reinforcing critical physical distancing, more and more Ontarians are working from home. OHCOW ergonomists past and present offer a few tips in the attached documents on taking the time to set up a proper workstation to improve health, safety, and even productivity, which is better for all. Plus our Ergonomics resource page and Ergotools provide an abundance of information and guidance, including videos, on fitting your workstation to you, instead of contorting yourself to fit it, or alternatively, roaming around with a laptop. And if none of that helps, don’t hesitate to contact the Clinic nearest you to get a telephone or virtual consultation. We’re here to help, free of charge. (And don’t forget about Electrical Safety either).
