Workplace Ergonomics

Dr. Health Williams joins us in this episode to provide listeners today on what ‘workspace ergonomics is’ and how workplace ergonomics goes beyond the physical office and equipment set up, but looking at all the domains of ergonomics.  

Questioning if business are taking into consideration these ergonomic domains, or are they just ticking a box by meeting the physical domain? The design in the workspace can have a great impact on individual productivity, way of working and how they interact with others. Finding the balance of each of these ergonomic domains is key to ensuring highest level of productivity.

The three ergonomic domains

1.  Physical

2. Cognitive

3. Organisational

Heaths take home tips for applying ergonomics when working from home

  • Set-up 

If working for prolonged hours at home, ensure you have the correct physical set up.

  • Movement

Ensure you’re mindful of moving throughout the day, whether it be walking and talking throughout a meeting If using hands-free ear pods. 

  • Regular breaks 

Be sure to take regular breaks throughout the day.  If you only have a spare hour in your work day to go for a walk think about splitting that up into three 20 minus walks through out the day instead.

Ep. 022 – Knowing your worth – The Self-Worth Movement w/ Farah Mak The Let me take a Selfie Podcast

Initially the self-wort moment was created from a poem Farah wrote called she shines which was love letter to herself and a call to arms. Farah even had a vision to turn the poem into a short film, knowing she could touch and change many lives. After years, her vison came to light with the short film now in pre-production as well as a feature film around multiple stories to be released in 2022. Self-worth can be stifled by many things; trauma, abandonment, bullying, sickness, grief and so much more. Through Farah’s road to self-validation was not easy. Regaining her self-worth was transformational. It helped her achieve hopes and dreams, and she wants to share this with women and girls around the world and to empower and understand their true worth.   For show notes, visit: https://benjaminrashleigh.com/ep-022-knowing-your-worth-the-self-worth-movement/
