Ergonomics and Anthropometry Part 1

Hi all.

This is my work, about choosing a comfortable workplace and which one is better and what are the areas of consideration when designing a comfortable work place.

Here are the questions and answers:

1.Compare the two types of setup and state reasons why one of the setup is preferred.

The one which the man is in a black suit is preferred. It is more comfortable, more spacious, and fell better after long hours of work.

2. What are the area of considerations when designing a conducive and comfortable workplace?

Comfort, height and depth, lighting, freedom of movement, prolonged laptop use and useable desk space.

3. State the reasons why these considerations are important.

For comfort, you must be comfortable so you can concentrate in your work better as a person might be sitting there for a long time throughout the day.

For height and depth, the length between the eyes and the paper or computer screen must be just right or else it is no good for your eyes. It should be adjustable just in case a different person is there or the person is sitting in a different position.

For lighting, there must be good and proper lighting so that it is good for your eyes. It should have a table light just in case the ceiling light is behind the person and he is blocking the light, and a shadow is cast, making in darker and might spoil your eyes.

For freedom of movement, the chair should be on wheels so that it is easy to move around and different people might prefer different positions of sitting.

For prolonged laptop use, there should be a laptop holder so that it will feel comfortable after using it for a long time. If not, it will be very tiring and uncomfortable.

For useable desk space, the desk must be spacious to put things. Or else, it will make it look cramped and untidy. The person might need to put additional stuff on the table would not have enough space.

So these are my answers.

Thank You.
