  Work Environment

Tips for improving your work environment

  • Adjust your chair and DSE to find the most comfortable position for your work. As a broad guide, your arms should be approximately horizontal and your eyes at the same height as the top of the DSE casing.
  • Make sure there is enough space underneath your desk to move your legs freely. Move any obstacles such as boxes or equipment.
  • Avoid excess pressure on the backs of your legs and knees. A footrest, particularly for smaller users, may be helpful.
  • Arrange your desk and screen so that bright lights are not reflected in the screen. You shouldn't be directly facing windows or bright lights. Adjust curtains and blinds to prevent unwanted light.
