In manufacturing and assembly environments, the Work Bench you use can especially impact your overall health. If you're experiencing sore arms and wrists, backaches and ongoing fatigue, it could be the Work Bench you're using defies simple ergonomic principles. The best advice is to use an Adjustable Work Bench that you can conform to your body with the proper working height (elbows at 90-110 degrees, torso as straight as possible and head not tilted in an extreme downward position). Just like at a computer workstation, keep the tools you use frequently within reach (i.e., in the neutral zone, 18-23 inches. Place secondary tools 24-36 inches.) Extended reaching puts an awkward strain on muscles and is a culprit of long-lasting pain.

If you use a computer, apply our recommended ergonomic setup: 1) Keep the center of your monitor at eye level and centered at your work space to prevent unnatural head tilting and angling while looking at the keyboard. 2) Keep your elbows level with the keyboard. 3) If you use a mouse, make sure it is next to the keyboard so you don't have to reach for the mouse.
