Ergonomics at Work and Home
Every day, we are reminded to keep Safety First and Always at the forefront. Ergonomics is an aspect of safety— incorporating ergonomic practices into your daily work and home life can go a long way in injury prevention. No matter what job you hold, if you are sitting, standing, walking, driving, or performing physical work, your musculoskeletal system is still impacted to some degree as the day progresses.
Fatigue may carry over into your personal time outside of work and the remaining hours of your day. Injury risk increases substantially when the body is fatigued. Since most of us partake in activities which apply stress to the body—sports, playing with a child or grandchild, completing housework, cooking, cleaning, etc.—it's important to prepare your body for the physical tasks at hand.
Plan ahead, don't take shortcuts, and listen when your body feels even slight discomfort. In the long run, having a conditioned body will allow you to avoid injury or to bounce back quicker from awkward postures and heal faster from unforeseen injury.
