21Ergonomics DO Adjust your workspace Use a neutral position Take breaks Do exercisesKeep fitSlide Show NotesAccording to OSHA, nearly 2 million U.S. workers report work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) every year. At least 375,000 of these injuries require workers to take time off from work to recover. Here’s what you can do to avoid becoming one of these statistics:Adjust your workspace to fit your body. Follow our company’s ergonomics guidelines for your workstation.Use a neutral position to maintain your body’s natural position. Keep your head straight and facing forward. Keep your shoulders neutral by holding your upper arms close to your body and not hunching or slumping. Keep your wrists in a straight line when working with hand tools or typing. Maintain your back’s natural curves by standing with feet shoulder-width apart or sitting with your thighs parallel to the floor and your feet flat on the floor.Take breaks to rest muscles and change position.Do stretching and flexing exercises to keep muscles limber and prevent injury.Finally, keep physically fit. Maintaining a wellness lifestyle by eating right, sleeping well, and exercising can reduce stress, tightened muscles, and the risk of MSDs.
22Ergonomics (cont.) DON’T Slouch or slump Use awkward positions Use wrong tools for tasksReach and stretch for itemsSlide Show NotesDon’t do the following actions or you risk getting an MSD:Don’t slouch or slump. Maintain good posture.Don’t use awkward positions, such as bending your wrist up or down to work, and bending over or twisting for long periods.Don’t use the wrong tools for tasks. This practice will force you to use awkward positions or excessive force to complete jobs, which increases your risk for MSDs. Ask your supervisor when you need a different tool.Finally, don’t reach and stretch for items. Arrange your work area to keep frequently used items within easy reach. Stand up to reach something from a shelf over your desk. Use a stepstool to reach something on a top shelf. Turn your body to face what you’re retrieving from the side; don’t twist your upper body and reach only with your arm.
