Welcome to Class !!
We are eager to have you join us !!
In today’s Computer Science class, We will be discussing Safety Measures. We hope you enjoy the class!
A person who uses a computer sometimes faces many problems if the computer is used for a long period of time. The problems may be health-related, like headache or vision problems and waist pain.
Ergonomics is the study people, their physical characteristics and the ways in which they function in relating to their working environment, the finishers and the machine they use. The main goal of ergonomics is to improve the design of the keyboard, computer, desk, chairs and others to better suit use in the workplace.
Back and neck strain can be avoided by ensuring that the chair which you seat provide proper support and by placing the monitor when you can comfortably.
Some safety measures include:
1. Monitor Placement:
The top edge of the monitor should be at the level of the eye or slightly lower than it. You can use a stand to raise the monitor to an appropriate level on your desk.
When you are seated, your feet should be flat on the floor and you should not lean forward or slouch in your chair. You should shift position often and stand up to stretch your arm and legs at least one hour.
An adjustable chair that provides support for the lower back should be used.
4. Ergonomic Keyboard:
They are designed to reduce the risk of the waist and hand injury that results from prolonged use or repetition movement. An ergonomic keyboard includes an alternate key layout and plans set to minimize strain while typing.
5. To prevent wrist strain while typing, keep your elbow level with the keyboard and your wrist straight and higher than your fingers while you use a mouse, move the mouse with your entire arm instead of your wrist.
General Safety Measures
- The lighting in the room or office should be moderate
- Keep liquid away from the computer
- Protect the computer from dust
- A glare filter should be used to reduce or prevent eye strain
We have come to the end of this class. We do hope you enjoyed the class?
