October is ergonomics month…

It’s National Ergonomics month, something groups like the Human Factors and Ergonomics Society take pretty seriously. We do too. It’s part of our history and it’s part of our commitment to you, to create solutions that promote healthier, more productive environments for you to do what you do best…work, play, create.

Throughout the month we will be offering 20 ErgoTIPS for a more ergonomic and healthier workstyle. Our first comes courtesy of our web team.

ErgoTIP #1: Give yourself a Workspace Assessment

Healthy computing starts with awareness. Use our questionnaire to evaluate the ergo-fitness of your current set-up at Assessment.ergotron.com.

We wish you many ergonomic moments in the month ahead! Your back, and neck and wrists may thank you for it too.

Ahhhh, one of the greatest months of the year: October. Thankfully, it’s also National Ergonomics Month! One of the best times to help people pay attention to their daily activities and help them be more comfortable and productive.

To celebrate this month, we are teaming up with Humantech and co-hosting two different ergochat’s.

October 16: “Ask an ergonomist” – Ever wonder what’s actually happening to your back while raking, or shoveling snow? Maybe ergonomics still just doesn’t make sense?! We will have a certified ergonomist on the chat willing to take questions and discuss a broad range of ideas.

October 30: “What’s all the fuss about sit-stand?” – It’s the latest trend in office and home computing, but what’s the big deal? Should you sit or should you stand? And, what can you do if you don’t have the option to do both? Lucky for you, both Humantech and Ergotron come to the chat with information from different perspectives. You won’t want to miss this one.

Details: #ergochat is a Twitter chat. At 1PM CST on the dates listed above, jump on Twitter and join the conversation. Each tweet should include the hashtag (#ergochat), and you can follow along in a twitter search. After the hour is up, we will post the transcript over on the Computing Comfort microsite.

So why do you need to get involved? Well, those are two great ways to start. And, we will also be running a promo for a free WorkFit, sit-stand workstation of your choice. And, check back to the blog throughout the month for more posts on the topic!
