See how Jill and Tecnomatix Process Simulate Human can help you set up your safe and comfortable home office

Keeping ergonomic scores low is key to setting up a safe and comfortable work environment, including working from home. Here are some suggestions from Jill (and Karen Banar) that you should consider when setting up your home office:

  • Adjust your seat to keep your wrist straight and your hands at or below the elbow level
  • Keep your display at arm’s length away from you
  • Keep key objects close to your body to minimize reaching
  • The top of the display should be at or slightly below your eye level
  • Adjust your chair height so that your knees are about level with your hips
  • If your chair is too high for you to rest your feet flat on the floor, use a footrest
