What Is Home Office Ergonomics?

Telework involves working from home. The term “telecommuting” is also used to talk about teleworking.

With home office ergonomics, we try to help prevent pain and injuries that could appear after a few months of working in an inappropriate setup.




Laptop

Working from home using a laptop can be hard on your body. Some people develop neck pain or shoulder pain.

This can be resolved by using an external keyboard and an external mouse. This also allows you to put your laptop at a higher level, such as on a pile of books. The idea here is to have the top of your laptop screen at eye level. But if you wear bifocals, your computer screen should be lower.

Screen Positioning, Windows and Lighting

According to guidelines, your computer screen should be at a 90-degree angle from the window (not facing it, and not behind you). The idea is to avoid light reflections in your computer screen, or glare due to direct light.

Also, the general lighting of your workplace should be sufficient and well balanced. Try to avoid dark spots and add more lighting if needed.
