New eTool for Computer Workstations

The US Occupational Safety and Health Administration released a new eTool that
will help you create a safe and comfortable computer workstation. There is no
single “correct” posture or arrangement of components that will fit everyone.
However, there are basic design goals, some of which are shown in the
accompanying figure, to consider when setting up a computer workstation or
performing computer-related tasks.

Consider your workstation as you read through each section and see if you can
identify areas for improvement in posture, component placement, or work
environment. This eTool provides suggestions to minimize or eliminate
identified problems, and allows you to create your own "custom-fit" computer
workstation.
