Why go Ergo?
How does your workspace measure up?
At Adapt we’re passionate about creating workspaces that work. All of our office furniture and equipment has been ergonomically designed to help you perform your work activities more efficiently and comfortably.
Why is ergonomics important?
Every year, millions of workdays are lost worldwide due to workplace injuries and illnesses.
By incorporating ergonomic design into your workplace, you’ll be taking steps to help reduce absenteeism and increase productivity.
An ergonomically designed workspace leads to:
- A more focused and productive workforce
- Reduced levels of absenteeism due to work-related injury or illnesses
- The ability to adapt a desk to multiple users (ideal for shift-working and hot-desking)
- An efficiently used workspace
- Maximised use of technology to improve efficiency
- The flexibility to meet changing demands
In a world where ever-changing technology drives new ways of working, ergonomic design in the workplace has never been more important.
Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a workspace.
Ergonomics makes a difference
If you’re still unsure whether an ergonomic office design is worth the investment, consider the following:
- Worldwide, there are an estimated 340 million occupational accidents and 160 million victims of work-related illnesses each year
- 8.9 million UK working days were lost due to work-related musculoskeletal disorders in 2016
