  • Lighting: overall light levels should be between 500 and 1000 lux for general working conditions; decreased to a level between 300 and 500 for computer work. You may need extra task light to read paper document.
  • Work surfaces: it is essential to place worksurfaces at the right height. Keyboards should be operated at a lower level of the general desk use. It is also advised to use rounded worktop edges to protect arms and wrists.
  • Keyboard: place it in front of your body, between 10 and 40 cm, and at a level where it can be operated without having to lift the shoulders and with arms and wrists straight.
  • Chair: an ergonomic task chair is a chair that accommodates a variety of movements and supports different postures. The height should be adjustable, the seat should be tiltable and edge rounded and the backrest should follow the spine.
        • Storage: you may require two or three separate storage areas:
              One for the work in hand, it should be near or around your desk.
             Storage in an accessible location for bulk supplies and recent projects documentation.
              And a third system related to your working history.

Small improvement steps joined to strict discipline can make a big difference by creating an ideal work environment with efficient productivity.
