Important Ergonomic Factors To Consider At Office Design Stage

13 May 2019Dylan Campbell

The development of modern offices around the world is going on at an amazing rate. As economies evolve, business are sharpening their marketing skills, improving worker’s efficiency – and in particular maximizing the utilization of office space. With stiff competition for the best hands, employers are seeking ways of keeping their staffs committed and dedicated to organization goals.  One of the means of maintaining loyalty is making them comfortable in the office. Attention is now on the ergonomics of office furniture Gold Coast to provide employees with convenience. Prospective employees also now take note of the working environment; so if you want the best employees, create the best office.

In fact, ergonomics can enhance both human productivity and the usage of technology for better efficiencies and reduced expenses. That is, costs related to lost time, injuries, insurance claims and mostly wasteful work plans and methods.

When you are designing or redesigning your workplace, it’s essential you consider all features of ergonomics, accessibility and productivity. Don’t overlook a step; remember all the factors are important.


It’s misguided to jump into a new office without knowing what is broken or functioning in the old. Perform a simple ergonomic hazard valuation to quickly find out what part(s) of a job are causing quality, productivity or comfort issues.

Ergonomic problems are usually a consequence of wasteful processes, poor layout, improper or unsuitable equipment and poor worker habits. Moving ahead with any design short of understanding these straightforward elements can be expensive and regularly breeds frustration and non-confidence among employees


After completing the assessment, determine which of the identified hazards are problematic and diminish the human ability to perform effectively. Anthropometrics, a study of measurements and proportions of the human body, should be a first line of defense when looking at design.

When used effectively, anthropometrics can reduce or completely engineer many hazards out of work space designs, layouts and equipment usage. It’s the only way to ensure that the design will fit the workforce, the space and the task.


Improvements in technology can help ease some of the annoying disconnects that arise when stretching the limits of the body.

Don’t look at the physical environment alone; the processes, procedures and tasks that employees are going to perform will also go a long way in determining. Mobile systems and modern office tools allow now allow workers to engage in conference calls without leaving their office. Less movement: less stress and improved performance.

Shopping for home office furniture today. Dylan was very helpful and was very understanding of my requirements. Would definitely recommend.
Bought a new office chair for summer. I am a large guy and the chair was rated just above my weight. Sadly the chair began to break and bend. I returned it to Danny's with no receipt but the date and price I paid. Dylan was able to find my order, took the chair for repairs and even gave me a loaner chair. I expected about 1 week turnaround but was surprised it took 3 days. Awesome company and awesome service. You have a customer for life.

The whole process was so neat and tidy without any hiccups and hidden conditions, from the quoting stages to the delivery i was informed of what was happening and the service has been great...
I was extremely sceptical when I initially read Dannys had a 5 star google rating. However after visiting there today and buying a wonderful chair I perhaps think they deserve 6 stars rather than 5.Thanks Marek hope this gets you a pay-rise.

Have just received the delivery of new furniture for a home office. The staff at Danny's Desk were great to deal with, very friendly and helpful and not pushy. Great selection of everything one would need and good prices. Was kept informed regarding the delivery with a call after purchase, a call to confirm the day and time for delivery and a call on the day of prior to actual delivery. Would highly recommend.

I bought one chair more than one year ago, and it’s built with high quality and very comfortable. One thing happened to me recently that again proves this company really cares about it’s customers.I was lodging tax return and couldn’t count my receipt. So I write a letter to a email address listed on their website, asking for help, but not actually expecting a reply as the purchase happened more than one year ago.Amazingly, I got a reply the next morning from one of their staff named Marek (my email is precious evening). I was so grateful with them. I highly recommend this company if you want to buy a chair.
