    General Advantages to using a Backatwork Electric Height Adjustable Sit-stand Desk
    The most significant OH&S risk factor in office work environments is musculoskeletal injuries to the back, shoulders, neck and arms. These are aggravated by the traditional fixed-height office desking systems, most often mismatched to the body dimension of the users. Backatwork fully electronic, touchpad controlled height adjustable desks address this risk directly by encouraging and allowing full range movement throughout the working day.

    Backatwork height adjustable desks allow the user to move into their preferred working position and adjust the ergonomic furniture to suit them - at the touch of a button. The user can even make the smallest micro adjustments to get exactly the right height to suit their needs at different times of day.

    This reduces the  exposure of employer to OH&S claims for failing their duty of care by:

    • Providing ergonomic work environment to prevent work related back and neck injuries from non ergonomic desks.
    • Compying with disability access requirements.
    • Facilitating safe return to work from back injuries.
