Ergonomics Checklist For Your Laboratory

Ergonomics Checklist For Your Laboratory

There are numerous areas in laboratory that you can reorganize to work leaner and safer.

Risk factors in laboratory are not only limited to toxic and potent substances. They include also common problems such as work-related musculoskeletal diseases of upper limbs and neck caused by overuse due to repetitive tasks, unfavorable postures and physical overload. Eye problems are also frequent in low-light or visually intensive tasks. But ergonomics is about more than safety. It is also about comfort.

Arrange your workplace so it suits you better

Some users may have special needs, such as left-handedness, color blindness or vision impairment. The goal should be enough equipment flexibility to accommodate all lab personnel so that each person can interface with it effectively.

Shape your work environment and processes to your needs by considering ergonomics before making equipment purchases or modifying work areas or tasks. Our ergonomics checklist will help you boost your well-being and optimize your performance with useful tips and techniques.
