We keep saying, all prolonged static work postures are harmful. Maintaining a sitting position is even more so. Prolonged, this sedentary behavior generates various effects on health. Effects that can range from musculoskeletal disorders or mental health damage, to cardiovascular pathologies …
For the INRS (French National Institute for Research and Safety), any work situation can be adapted. The aim must be to improve the comfort, safety and efficiency of work. The seat therefore necessarily constitutes work equipment in its own right. It should not be considered in isolation or as an adjustment “variable”. He is part of a whole.
The work posture.
According to the institute, it is essential to provide a layout and organization of work allowing the alternation of different work postures. Prolonged static postures must be broken and employees should be given the opportunity to choose work postures according to the nature, diversity and variability of the tasks they have to perform. The sit-stand position is therefore recommended by a large majority of experts for its many benefits.
The sit-stand posture, which corresponds to a simple “gluteal support” without real sitting, is suitable for situations where it is not possible to adopt a fully seated position or for a situation requiring frequent alternation between sitting and posture. standing. It helps support part of the body’s weight and makes it easier to return to a standing posture. Conversely, it limits the work area but less significantly than the sitting posture. In addition, the prolonged local compression in the posterior part of the thighs can cause circulatory discomfort.
