Working Safely with Your Computer Equipment

Work pattern

  • Rotate work activities where possible. Try to spend around five minutes in each hour carrying out work activities away from the computer.

  • Take regular screen breaks.

Your workstation and equipment layout

  • Remove anything from under your workstation that causes you to twist when sitting.

  • Arrange pieces of equipment that you use frequently, eg the telephone, so that you do not stretch to reach them.

  • Use a document holder if you frequently refer to paper documents at the same time as working on your screen, eg when entering data.
