COURSE DESCRIPTION

The best ergonomic designs are those born of human need.  This CEU will explain how incorporating movement options into the office system can fulfill the human need to be active and why movement is  so valuable to promote occupant health and productivity.

We will share the history of the chair and how it has influenced today’s working environment, the drivers behind the historic rise of the traditional sedentary office workplace over the past 40 years and investigate the recent shift to a more movement-oriented office space.  Current research findings will be summarized on why the body experiences pain within sedentary work settings.  We’ll give practical tips for maximizing human performance and minimizing pain through activity permissive designs of furnished equipment, office layouts and work accessories.

Additional topics will include standing versus perching (semi-standing) versus sitting, preferred daily movement ratios for postural transitions, ROI of ergonomic office design applications and the most frequent office injuries and how o avoid them.  The CEU will conclude with examples of recent innovative office designs that promote movement.

Find out what steps your organization can take to create a more active working environment and learn ways to positively impact performance and workplace safety.

 

LEARNING OBJECTIVES:
1.  See how sedentary positions correlate to negative occupant health issues and discomfort in the office
2.  Understand how the physical design and layout of office interiors affects the frequency and flow of occupant movement
3.  Appreciate how activity permissive interior designs can promote movement and can improve wellbeing and productivity
4.  Apply published research findings regarding alternative interior furniture products, such as sit-lean-stand workstations and motion seating to help resolve ergonomic challenges associated with sedentary work.
