Adjust your chair – it’s a no brainer!

terrible_posture_laptopThis will be quite a short blog and there is a good reason for that! It is about a subject that needs a short, sharp message.

One of our frequent topics of conversation with Health & Safety and Occupational Health professionals is the fascinating (and frustrating) issue of why people don’t bother to adjust their work chair.

For some reason, these individuals prefer to be uncomfortable!

In search of a simple message that most adults would understand, I created this:

 

Adjust your office chair – it’s a no-brainer!

Do you have a driving licence? Would you drive off in a vehicle without making sure you can reach the accelerator and brake?

Then apply the same ‘safety’ thinking to your office chair! Take a minute to set it up.

Why sit on a chair hour after hour (or day after day) if it’s uncomfortable? When you know what to do, setting your office chair is as quick as adjusting your car seat.

Less than a minute provides a day of comfort.

Not sure how to do it? Speak to your Health & Safety Manager or check your intranet.

This will be our next One Minute Video and will appear here when it has been created.
