Ergonomics in Computer Assembly

Posted by on 9/15/2017

When you’re assembling electronics in a lab or cleanroom setting, you’ve got a lot on your mind. You need to make sure the area is clear of dust, and you’re safe from static shocks. Are you also paying attention to keeping yourself from getting hurt? If you find you end each day with pain in your back and neck, then you need this guide on ergonomics in your manufacturing workplace.

The easiest way to keep your back from hurting while working is an ergonomic chair. You can find ESD chairs for your lab that help your posture and also prevent static discharge. These chairs may be more expensive than a basic computer station chair, but they are worth the investment. Proper back support while you’re sitting prevents pain and severe injury.

Assembly benches should be at the appropriate height for your work. You want to avoid bending your back too much, so an adjustable bench will be perfect. The best workstations will adjust between sitting and standing, so you can work in the most comfortable position for you. If you can, attempt to use your bench in a standing position for about 50% of your workday. This will strengthen your back muscles and lower your pain, as well as provide other valuable health benefits.

Try to avoid craning your neck too much while working. The best way to do this is to have plenty of space in your workspace to move around your station to view your project from different angles. Sometimes, however, it is unavoidable, so take some time each day to stretch and do any necessary exercises. Turn your head slowly right to left or rotate your neck in a small circle to work out any kinks—try doing this once or twice a day to avoid stiffness.

Waveroom Plus offers the ergonomic tools you need for your workstation. Check out the options today and be healthier at work.
