Companies investing in ergonomics to improve workplace environment

Companies investing in ergonomics to improve workplace environment, If you work at an office all day, chances are that you most likely experience the side effects of sitting down for several hours at a time, staring at a computer screen and typing on the keyboard incessantly. Ergonomics has become a growing trend in the workplace for the past decade and companies are making heavy investments.

Some of the most common issues are repetitive stress injuries (RSIs) and computer vision syndrome (CVS). A worker’s musculoskeletal system is made up of the structures that helps you move, like bones, joints, muscles, tendons, and ligaments. Therefore, ergonomic problems could lead to carpal tunnel syndrome, muscle strains, tendon injury and bursitis in the future.

According to statistics, RSIs cost employers anywhere between $20 billion and $100 billion. This has led businesses to invest in brand new ergonomic-friendly equipment. Many of the furniture that could help employees are things like a standing desk, chairs good for your back and padding for your wrists.

One of the most popular purchases is the adjustable standing desk because this allows workers to be active as they work. Media outlets have covered this growing trend and usually depict workers actually on a treadmill as they work with these standing desks.

JP Office Workstations is a company that specializes in improving the workplace environment with office equipment that can make workers feel much more comfortable instead of cramped. It offers an array of products, including workstations, screens, chairs, desks, storage, cafe furniture and more.

All of the office furniture and equipment sold are trendy and fashionable and may even reinvigorate the office. “Get that attractive, funky, modern office - without breaking the budget,” the company states on its website.

Although at first glance it may appear to be rather expensive, but over time it could save companies a lot of money because workers will not be experiencing leg cramps, sore muscles and aching backs (or even depression). JP Office Workstations provides free estimates and quotes.

It supplies the metro areas of Adelaide, Brisbane, Melbourne, Perth and Sydney. It accepts various payment methods, including PayPal, Visa, eBay, Cirrus and 2CO. JP Office Workstations can also be found on Facebook, Twitter, LinkedIn, Google+ and Pinterest.
