Haworth Connect – Making Work From Home Work: A Look At Ergonomics At Home

24 Sep 2020 - 12:00 PM - 1:00 PM

Event Description

In the current climate of uncertainty, many of us are being asked to shift our workplace to our home. Despite this disruption to work norms, there are ways to make your time at home equally productive and positive.

A key component of physical health is ergonomics, a complex science that focuses on optimizing well-being by studying jobs, tasks, products, environments, and systems to ensure they are designed for compatibility with people.

In this webinar, Dr. Teresa Bellingar, Haworth Senior Corporate Ergonomist will share with us how we can apply ergonomic principles to our work set up at home.
