Move and Take Breaks

  • Alternate between sitting and standing or incorporate stretch breaks every half-hour/hour.
  • Use the 20-20-20 Rule: Look 20 feet away from your computer for 20 seconds every 20 minutes.

Get to Know Your Equipment

  • Office equipment that is adjusted to your specific needs helps prevent workplace discomfort and injuries.
  • Try to vary your posture throughout the day. Most office equipment is made to support this, so take advantage!

Be Proactive and Identify Issues Early

  • Inform your managers as early as possible if you begin to experience discomfort at work.
  • Many ergonomic issues can be resolved with education and equipment adjustments.

Be Healthy at Home

  • Non-work activities can significantly contribute to the discomfort that you are experiencing at work.
  • Leading a healthy lifestyle with proper nutrition, exercise and sufficient sleep can help you be more comfortable at work as well.
