Posture and Comfort

Posture and Comfort

This topic will help you maintain the efficiency of your team.

In brief: if your people are not comfortable, their performance is suffering.


Understand posture, and efficiency can follow.

The topic looks at poor working posture – the commonest causes of musculoskeletal discomfort and pain at work – which is a fundamental, vital and yet largely misunderstood area of our working life.

The topic is couched largely in terms of computer users, but it also looks at other areas, such as driving, where posture is important to working efficiency.


Your organisation may have its own policies that relate to this topic. You should always check these policies before taking any action that could carry personal or organisational liabilities, and seek qualified advice if there is an apparent conflict between your organisation’s policies and the content of this topic.
