Ergonomics and COVID-19

Updated: Dec 3, 2020

Wherever you are in the world, I am sure COVID-19 has impacted your work life in some way or the other...

It is said that since the outbreak of COVID-19, 1 in 3 people are now working from home until the foreseeable future. Will this change the way we work forever? Will we be saying goodbye to those long train commutes every day? Well, for some of us, this may well be the new reality. The days of dress-down Fridays and office gossip may be long gone.

In fact, companies have already decided that their employees can have the option to work from home forever. Yes, forever! So, what does that mean for you, as an office worker, working from home?

Well, for starters I am sure the first thing you will have to think about is, where at home will I work? Is there enough space in the living room? How can I afford a decent desk without taking up space in the bedroom? Can I continue to work using the ironing board forever?

Aches, pains, noise, distractions. It happens to all of us. If cont

inued in the long-term, it will have a physical and mental impact on us. Workload itself can be a stressor and surely, the worry of neck ache is something we do not want to add to the list of worries.

This is where Ergonomex can help.

Ergonomex can provide virtual personalised 1:1 work desk assessment. Whether you’re working from the sofa or ironing board, we will have solutions to fit you. We know how expensive office equipment can be so our therapists can think of ways to utilise what you have at home, whilst maintaining a good and healthy posture.

Our professionally trained therapists will wr

ite an in-depth report of recommendations on what you can change and adapt. The report covers assessment of your posture, desk, screens, keyboard and chair. We also address mental-health – a huge factor in ensuring a healthy way of working.

With the world changing so quickly, we need to think about our physical and mental-well being first. Once you can manage that, you will be well on your way of an efficient work life at home.
