The Four Pillars of Ergonomics

For a computer based workstation to be optimized for performance, it must address the 4 Pillars of Ergonomics: Support, Reach, Breathing and Vision.  When all 4 pillars are accommodated, the user can work in complete comfort for maximized performance and productivity.  Just as a table stands on four legs, each pillar plays a critical role. And when all 4 work in harmony, the benefits are far-reaching.

four pillars of ergonomics, support
Working in a relaxed, fully supported position relieves stress, minimizes injury risks and helps maximize performance. Full support is achieved by leaning back in an ergonomic task chair with arms and shoulders relaxed and feet flat on the floor or a footrest.
four pillars of ergonomics, reach
Reaching for often used tools takes the body out of a healthy, supported posture and can lead to muscle strain. Having work tools and materials within easy reach - the "Neutral Reach Zone" - minimizes injury risks and improves performance.

4 Pillars of Ergonomics: Breathing
Indoor air quality is a critical component of an ergonomic workstation, yet it is often overlooked. Breathing clean, fresh air promotes health from the inside out, allowing employees to feel - and work - their best.
four pillars of ergonomics, vision
Difficulty viewing something because it's too far away or improperly lit can results in eyestrain and poor posture. Setting up the work area with the monitor at the right distance and proper lighting of both monitor and paper documents is critical for optimized ergonomics
