Is Your Work Station Safe?
By Marty Nemko
An ounce of prevention can be worth a ton of cure.
What can you do today?
I want you to honestly answer yes to all these questions:
- I take a few-second break every minute I'm using a keyboard or mouse.
- The top of my monitor is at eye-level, 15-25 inches from my eyes.
- My monitor is placed to avoid glare. If necessary, it has a hood, even if it's just cardboard.
- I use an ergonomic keyboard or slant it so the keyboard's top is level with or slightly lower than the bottom.
