This article reminds us why it's so important to provide your office employees an ergonomically safe workplace. Poor ergonomics in your workspace can cause musculoskeletal conditions that eventually have a negative impact on your nerves, tendons and muscles.

Business owners must employ an ergonomic policy to avoid expensive workers compensation claims and have happier productive employees.
