Quick Tips for Sit-Stand Desk Users

By Guy Osmond on 8th Sep 2014

We have been working with employers to identify behaviour change issues and training requirements related to the use of sit-stand desks in the office. Needs vary from organisation to organisation and this often depends as much on corporate culture as on physical workplace issues.

Sit Stand Tips | Osmond Ergonomics

One common theme has been the need for a ‘quick tips’ list. Those of us embedded in these activities every day sometimes forget that the ‘blindingly obvious’ (to us) may not even be visible to the majority! The document therefore has to be something with a handful of ideas that are easily implemented and make sense to everyone, rather than just the ergonomics/health & safety team members.

The result is a one page, ‘6 ideas’ list that is deliberately simple. For a longer, more detailed list, see one of my previous blogs.

What our customers say

"My multifunctional job requires me to frequently change between activities. It has been a great help not having to both twist my body or neck each time I need to make notes or having to re-arrange my desk in order to accommodate the different tasks. The simplicity of operating the device ensures I use it properly all the time and being tall it has helped considerably with alleviating my constant neck pain. I would not want to be without this item."
