Fellowes - work better

Working at a desk has become a risky business
It wasn’t long ago that office workers were the furthest removed from workplace dangers. Hazards of the job tended to be reserved for manual workers, whose role involved operating machinery, lifting heavy materials, working at height and other risky activities. All of which were a world a way from the comforts of the office environment.

Fast-forward to 2016 - and how things have changed.

Since introducing the online Workstation Risk Assessment for Staples customers, we’re hearing that today’s office job is anything but a comfortable one. And that’s mainly down to bad working habits and poor posture whilst working at a desk.

Back ache, neck strain and wrist pain are three of the most common complaints that lead to poor work performance, increased levels of absenteeism and long-term injuries.
