Abstract

If the design of the office furniture does not follow ergonomic principles, and if there is lack of exercises or relaxation during working hours, it is possible that various forms of physical deformations can occur. On the basis of recent research and standards, basic rules how to design office workstations according to ergonomic principles are shown. Dimensions of workstations in sitting and standing posture are shown with examples of ergonomically designed workstations for laptop computers and workstation for all age groups. Designers of office furniture, architects, and companies which design office interior should apply the international standards group ISO 9241 and the European standards EN 527-1; EN 1335-1 and European directives.
