ErgoTips & Tidbits

Lifting

When it comes to lifting, even something as small as a notebook – when it’s awkward – can hurt...

The rules of thumb with lifting are:

  1. Put your most frequently lifted items and heaviest items as close to your waist as possible, whether sitting or standing, and as close to your body as possible.
  2. Put your least frequently lifted items and lightest items above shoulder level.
  3. Those moderate items can go below your thigh or waist level.

Prioritizing and organizing with these principles in mind will improve the health of your neck, shoulders, and back!

Pregnant Employees

Does your company accommodate employees who are pregnant? 

The Equal Employment Opportunity Commission (EEOC) recently made the first major update to the guidance on pregnancy discrimination since 1983.  As part of reasonable accommodations, the EEOC suggests that marginal or nonessential tasks be redistributed to workers who can perform those tasks, as well as allowing more frequent breaks, purchasing or modifying equipment or temporarily reassigning them to light duty.
