While office furniture may not be the hottest trend in technology, it is never the less critical in the performance and productivity of any office. From CPU and printer stands, to file cabinets, to desks, workstations and chairs, to carts to move the mail, each represents an important piece in the day to day business work flow.
One of the most important aspects of office furniture is Ergonomics! Ergonomics (or human factors) is the application of scientific information concerning objects, systems and environment for human use. Ergonomics was largely unheard of 20 years ago, but today, it is one of the most important features of any workplace. Ergonomics is commonly thought of as how companies design tasks and work areas to maximize the efficiency and quality of their employees' work, and how to minimize problems that can come from work and repetitive tasks. In reality, ergonomics comes into everything, which involves people. Work systems, sports and leisure, health and safety should all embody ergonomics principles if well designed. Most of today's manufacturers, such as: Edsal, Kendall Howard, Leda, Mayline, Nexel, Safco, and other design with ergonomic principals in mind.
