Office Ergonomics (CCOHS)

Developed by: CCOHS (Canadian Centre for Occupational Health and Safety)

Description:  This resource links to a set of 16 other information sheets about office ergonomics. The topics at this resource cover furniture choices (desk style, chair options), adjusting the workstation to the worker (desk, monitor, chair, keyboard/mouse positioning), interacting with computers (wrist supports, monitor brightness, taking breaks), and a few other miscellaneous topics. The information at this resource has been gradually created and updated over time, so some of the topics may give differing or contradictory advice as the research behind this information updates over time.

This is one of a series of 20 guidelines for common workplace tasks created by this developer. You can access them by clicking on the “Ergonomics” link at the top of this resource.
