Using Height Adjustable Tables to Create an Ergonomic Workplace
The human body is designed to be in motion, yet many current workplace furnishings are designed for sitting the entire day. This has led many workers to experience neck pain, backaches and postural problems. Enter the Height Adjustable Table, now a staple in ergonomic furniture design, which allows the user to easily switch from sitting to standing at the touch of a button. The Height Adjustable Table, including Tayco’s Volley table, is key to mitigating ergonomic issues, in turn offering happier and healthier employees.
Here’s Why You Need a Height Adjustable Table
Better Ergonomics Create a Healthy, Happy Working Environment
Have you ever walked through your office and noticed your coworkers sitting hunched over their computers, or heard them complaining about back and neck pain? Sitting all day, especially in a non-ergonomic setup can lead to muscle strain and fatigue. When employees can move from sitting to standing, they re-energize their bodies and improve blood flow to relieve tired muscles. Remember, a healthy employee is a happy employee. The Height Adjustable Table is a great step to providing a healthy and happy working environment.
It Can Improve Mental Clarity & Productivity
An uncomfortable work setup leads to muscle injury, which can truly consume the thoughts and affect the mood of the worker. When in pain, it can be hard to focus on anything else, especially the task at hand. A Height Adjustable Table, like the Volley, empowers the worker to be in control of their posture, helps to alleviate pain from sitting, which in turn will create a more productive team member.
Overall, it is Better for Business
247,620 of the one million work-related injuries reported in the United States in 2020 were related to musculoskeletal disorders, generally known as an ergonomic injury (NSC). The median of workdays lost for this disorder is 11 days. That is 11 days of lost productivity that could have been avoided. A Height adjustable table can help to reduce unnecessary costs and lost productivity by decreasing ergonomic injuries.
