Are you requiring task chairs that can help avoid and correct health issues in the workplace?
At Corporate Chairs, we are fully aware that inadequately designed office chairs lead to serious health implications for individuals and major costs to businesses annually in Australia.
This is why it is crucial and essentially important to consider the 5 features below.
- Independent Adjustment Controls
Occupant ability to adjust the backrest angle, independent of the seat angle, is mandatory for task seating in Australia. Failure to have this functionality in a chair used for workstation applications, dramatically reduces the ability for the chair to be able to correctly support different body shapes and sizes found in a large workforce, and poses risk for the posture related challenges found in the Australian workforce.
- Cushioned Lumbar Support
A cushioned lumbar support is a mandatory OHS requirement in the Australian workforce, as opposed to a plastic or rubberised strap. A cushioned lumbar support provides the occupant specific support without creating focused pressure points on the spine.
- Backrest Height Adjustability
The ability for the occupant to raise or lower the backrest height is essential for achieving correct support and occupant safety across the varying shapes and sizes found in a large workforce.
- Seat Depth Adjustability
The ability for the occupant to adjust seat depth is essential to maintaining healthy sitting and removal of pressure points affecting the blood supply behind the knee.
- Customisable for special needs
The chair design to have the ability to fit a deeper or shallow seat, and modify seat foaming, gas lift heights and other modification requests, in the event of special needs.
The above mentioned are RealTM Ergonomics compliance criteria for task seating in Australia.
Given this, let Corporate Chair Systems help you ensure that your employees are able to enjoy the positive benefits of the seated posture while safe-guarding the health impacts of back pain and Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD’s) through our wide range of ergonomic chairs.
