Computer based workstations

Computer based workstations should be designed to allow adequate height, depth and work surface to suit the user, the type of work they do and the equipment they use.

The workstation should have the following features:

  • The desk surface should be a light colour and have a satin or matt finish.
  • A suitable height e.g. 680mm to 720mm when measured from the top of the workstation to the floor.
  • Adequate clearance for legs under the desktop.  
  • Sufficient space under the desk to comfortably stretch legs.

Height Adjustable Workstations

Height adjustability is another highly desirable workstation feature and all height adjustable workstations need to be easily adjustable.

Sit-stand desks

Sit-stand desks are another option for consideration for employees wishing to reduce sedentariness.
