The guide explains reach zones and how to set up a workspace.

FOR IMMEDIATE RELEASE
Michigan, March 2, 2023— In an effort to ensure businesses across America and the globe better understand the risks of an improperly designed workspace, BOSTONtec has published a must-have guide on ergonomic reach zones.
The guide could not come at a more critical time. In 2019, 28% of reported non-fatal injuries were attributed to musculoskeletal disorders arising from ergonomic-related risk factors (U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics). What is more, in 2022 the cost of injuries caused by handling objects and awkward postures is estimated at over $16 billion annually (Annual Workplace Safety Index by Liberty Mutual).
Nina Neuschuetz, Marketing Manager at BOSTONtec, states: “As a cornerstone in preventing ergonomic-related injuries, designing the workplace to fit the demands and needs of all employees is fundamental. Using our knowledge of ergonomic reach zones, we can design work settings that cater to the natural range of motion of the human body, significantly reducing musculoskeletal disorders. We’re excited to share this knowledge with managers, heath and safety professionals, and employees, alike.”
The company is a worldwide leader in ergonomic height-adjustable workstations. This highly comprehensive ergonomic guide (PDF) draws on their extensive body of in-house knowledge and research. Readers can expect to dive deep into concepts like:
- A definition of “Reach Zones”
- Explaining the various reach zones
- How to set up and layout a workspace
- Implementing administration controls
Understanding how reach zones affect workers’ everyday health ensures greater productivity and keeps people out of the doctor’s office.
BOSTONtec is well-placed to provide such a guide. They have three decades of experience in the ergonomic workstations sector. Their modular industrial workbenches adjust seamlessly to a wide variety of work processes and are endlessly flexible. This means owners can adapt the workstation settings and accessories as their requirements evolve.
