Office Ergonomics Checklist
Before you use this tool, you should look at ERGONOMICS: Take 4 Steps to Prevent MSIs in Office Spaces for more information.
Certain workplaces, such as construction sites, manufacturing operations and mines, are full of serious safety hazards. In contrast, office buildings and the office spaces within other types of workplaces may seem hazard-free. But office spaces do have safety hazards. Some of the most common hazards in offices are related to ergonomics and can cause repetitive stress or musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) injuries due to poor workspace design and related factors.
HOW TO USE THE TOOL
Have office workers complete this checklist to assess their workstation layout and posture to help reduce the risk of MSIs. Make sure that you address any hazards or issues they identify, using either the actions suggested in the form or other measures.
