The OFM Ergonomic Workstation

May 28 06:52 2008 David A. Zimmerman Print This Article

First, let me give you a layman’s explanation of ergonomics. To me, an ergonomic study analyzes the work performed by the male and female workforce, considers the skeletal and muscular body limitations and then designs a workstation to maximize comfort and productivity.

OFM,Guest Posting Inc. designs and manufactures an ergonomic workstation and ergonomic office furniture with adjustability. Adjustability that is sufficient to provide comfort to people of all sizes. Therein, employers have come to expect increases in productivity and quality while reducing lost time and workers compensation costs.

Adjustability is a key design ingredient. The ergonomic table height adjuster for a work surface and quality ergonomic office chairs allow for employee comfort regardless of physical size. In seated workstations this provides for proper knee, leg, and foot space while in standing workstations allow for proper arm, elbow, and hand space.  

Adjustability and productivity go hand in hand as workstation design must further resolve issues such as reach. That is, taking into consideration the placement of ergonomic keyboard trays, monitor, mouse, trackball or other pointing instrument. Then one also must consider drawers and shelving placement as well as the filing of papers and documents.

 The overall work area should provide adequate space for the worker regardless of size; and of course, lighting is also a key ingredient in the design process.

From a practical point of view, a properly designed workstation must assist in creating a professional as well as a pleasing appearance. Successful companies know that professionalism is what customers expect.

While the standards mentioned above are required to be successful, they represent a layman’s outline of the total and detailed requirements and considerations. Last, but certainly not least, the manufacturer must in addition offer affordable workstations.

OFM, Inc., offers a series of workstation designs fitting the descriptions above. They are referred to as Rize Panel System Workstations and Rize Panel System Privacy Stations.       

Rize Panel System Workstations are available in a one Workstation Unit up to and including a ten Workstation Unit. Each unit is offered with various configurations concerning overall footprint dimensions, panel height, individual workstation size, and panel type.

The Rize Panel System Privacy Station is available in a one Privacy Station Unit up to and including a tem Privacy Station Unit. Each unit is offered with various configurations concerning overall footprint dimensions, panel height, individual workstation size, and panel type.

From start to finish, they save time and money without compromising style and function.
