Workplace Preparation

Positioning the Monitor

Choose a suitable place to position the monitor where it is not near fluorescent desk lighting or any equipment that produces magnetic fields that could cause interference. Ensure that the furniture or equipment can support the weight of the monitor. Allow at least 2 inches (50mm) ventilation space around the monitor.

Height

The monitor should be positioned so that the top of the screen is slightly below your eye level when you sit at your workstation.

4

Orientation

Choose a position that gives the least reflection from lights and windows, usually at a right angle to any windows. The monitor should be positioned directly in front of you so that you do not have to twist your body. Tilt the monitor to a comfortable viewing angle.

Working Practices

Rest

Take regular breaks. Vary your posture, and stand up and stretch occasionally as prolonged use of computer workstations can be tiring.

Back

You should sit back in the chair and use the backrest.

Hands

Use a light touch on the keyboard, keeping your hands and fingers relaxed. Allow a space in front of the keyboard to rest your wrists when not typing. Consider using a wristpad.

Eyesight

Working with monitors, in common with any prolonged close work, can be visually demanding. Look away from the screen periodically and have your eyesight checked regularly.

Screen settings

Set the screen brightness and contrast to a comfortable level. You may have to adjust this as the lighting changes during the day. Many application programs let you select color combinations which can help you to view in comfort.
