Question: We had an Ergonomic Specialist come to our office to adjust our workstations but I’m still not happy. What can be done
differently?

Answer: People come in different sizes and different body proportions. It can be challenging to get your chair, keyboard and screen all positioned so that your workstation fits your body. A thorough evaluation will also take into account what you do at the computer and how you do it. Do you have deadlines? How’s the lighting? Are you squinting, hunching forward or throwing your head back to see the screen? Are you cradling the phone between your ear and shoulder? It’s hard to see what needs to change when you are part of your workstation. For help with getting happy at work, call Suzanne Kelly at STARS at 367-8968.
