Workstation Ergonomics Policy

1. Purpose

At Double Tap Marketing, we recognise that a well-designed workstation is essential for employee health, comfort, and productivity. Our Workstation Ergonomics Policy outlines guidelines for setting up workstations to prevent musculoskeletal strain and discomfort. By adhering to this policy, we create a conducive work environment that promotes well-being and efficiency.

2. Policy Statement

  1. Ergonomic Principles:

    • We follow ergonomic principles to optimize workstations.

    • Proper workstation design minimizes the risk of repetitive strain injuries (RSIs) and discomfort.

  2. Employee Responsibilities:

    • Employees are responsible for arranging their workstations according to ergonomic guidelines.

    • Regular self-assessments help maintain optimal ergonomics.

  3. Key Ergonomic Considerations:

a. Chair Setup:

  • Adjust chair height so feet rest flat on the floor.

  • Maintain a 90-degree angle at hips and knees.

  • Use lumbar support to maintain natural spinal curvature.

b. Monitor Position:

  • Position the monitor at eye level.

  • Ensure the top of the screen is at or just below eye level.

  • Maintain a comfortable viewing distance (about an arm’s length away).

c. Keyboard and Mouse:

  • Keep wrists straight and parallel to the floor.

  • Use a keyboard tray or wrist rest if needed.

  • Position the mouse close to the keyboard.

d. Desk Setup:

  • Adjust desk height to allow elbows to form a 90-degree angle.

  • Keep frequently used items within easy reach.

e. Lighting and Glare:

  • Avoid glare on the screen.

  • Use adjustable blinds or curtains to control natural light.

f. Breaks and Movement:

  • Take short breaks every hour.

  • Stretch and move to prevent stiffness.

  1. Training and Awareness:

    • New hires receive workstation ergonomics training during onboarding.

    • Regular reminders reinforce good practices.

  2. Assessment and Adjustments:

    • Managers conduct periodic workstation assessments.

    • Adjustments are made based on individual needs.

3. Conclusion

Double Tap Marketing prioritises employee well-being through proper workstation ergonomics. By adhering to this policy, we promote comfort, health, and productivity.
