Workdesk Assessment Guide
Your work space, and the way that it is set up, will have a big impact on your daily experience. Anyone who is using display screen equipment as part of their everyday job for an hour or more needs to carry out a workspace assessment (according to the Health & Safety Executive). This is a responsibility that usually falls to employers to implement - but whether you’re an employee working from home or an employer looking to ensure that your workforce is still cared for, in the office or not, this is what you need to consider for a workdesk assessment guide.
Make sure you have enough space. There should be enough room under your desk for your legs, including to be able to stretch them out so that they are not restricted. Your screen should be at least an arm’s length in front of you and level with your eyes so that you don’t have to look up or down. Also consider a sit / stand desk so you can remain a bit more active during long hours working.
Keep your space clutter free. You’ll not only find it much easier to be more productive if you’re working in a clutter free space but it’s safer too. Storage can be essential to achieving this - do you need to add more storage to the space you’re using to help make it more effective?
