While the general concept of an office role is sedentary working and maybe associated with RSI and bad backs – this doesn't actually have to be the case. A good ergonomic office chair will offer you fluid mechanisms and the dynamic movements required to feel relaxed yet energized in your work, and will stand the test of time!

After more than 24 years of the DSE regulations being in force; we have yet to see a decline in work related issues associated with display screen use. We have designed a workshop which we are delivering at venues across South Wales and the West to spread the word – teaching organizations how to understand and implement basic measures aimed at improving employee wellbeing whilst saving valuable resources and raising standards.

Hayden Rogers's curator insight, March 6, 2014 12:03 AM

OHS is around us everyday. It is not too hard to see it as the fabric of the workplace in everything we do at work. In some of the environments this video goes through, we often don't think of how they can cause us injury until it is too late and we are only reflecting on what went wrong.

Brendan Maher's curator insight, June 9, 2014 1:08 AM

As someone who sits and works at a computer for upto 14 hours a day for work and uni, I find this health and safety issue very close to my heart. I know the affects that brightness of computers and office lights, and uncomfortable office furniture can cause to the body.
