Ergonomics is one way to prevent injury within an industrial office. Repetitive actions can lead to musculoskeletal injuries, especially to the hands, wrists, arms, and shoulders.
Switching over office equipment to ergonomically friendly substitutes is always the best way to prevent repetitive injuries. The ergonomic substitutions can include desks, chairs, keyboards, and mouse.
By reducing the amount of repetitive strain injuries, the workplace becomes more comfortable, and encourages productivity because the employee is not sick because of their job.
