6 Steps to help reduce back pain.

06 Dec 2018

Sitting in an office chair for prolonged periods of time can definitely cause low back pain or worsen an existing back problem. The main reason behind this is that sitting, in an office chair or in general. When sitting in an office chair for a long period, the natural tendency for most people is to slouch over or slouch down in the chair, and this posture can overstretch the spinal ligaments and strain the discs and surrounding structures in the spine. Over time, incorrect sitting posture can contribute to or worsen back pain.

    1. Elbow measure
      First, begin by sitting comfortably as close as possible to your desk so that your upper arms are parallel to your spine. Rest your hands on your work surface, If your elbows are not at a 90-degree angle, adjust your office chair height either up or down.
    2. Thigh measure
      Check that you can easily slide your fingers under your thigh at the leading edge of the office chair. If it is too tight, you need to prop your feet up with an adjustable footrest. If you are unusually tall and there is more than a finger width between your thigh and the chair, you need to raise the desk or work surface so that you can raise the height of your office chair.
    3. Calf measure
      With your bottom pushed against the chair back, try to pass your clenched fist between the back of your calf and the front of your office chair. If you can’t do that easily, then the office chair is too deep. You will need to adjust the backrest forward.
    4. Low back support
      Your bottom should be pressed against the back of your chair, and there should be a cushion that causes your lower back to arch slightly so that you don’t slump forward or slouch down in the chair as you tire over time. This low back support in the office chair is essential to minimize the load (strain) on your back. Never slump or slouch forward in the office chair, as that places extra stress on the structures in the low back, and in particular, on the lumbar discs.
    5. Resting eye level
      Close your eyes while sitting comfortably with your head facing forward. Slowly open your eyes. Your gaze should be aimed at the center of your computer screen. If your computer screen is higher or lower than your gaze, you need to either raise or lower your chair.
    6. Armrest
      Adjust the armrest of the office chair so that it just slightly lifts your arms at the shoulders. Use of an armrest on your office chair is important to take some of the strain off your upper spine and shoulders, and it should make you less likely to slouch forward in your chair.

Following these simple steps will help in choosing the correct ergonomic office chair to help ease back pain when working for over 4 hrs per day. No matter how good your chair is please remember to take a break, go for a  walk to the other end of the office, or do light stretching to help the blood flow and help keep joints and muscle loose.

Are you ready for GDPR

15 May 2018

On May 25th 2018, the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR) will become enforceable. The regulation aims to give control over personal data back to individuals by strengthening and unifying data protection regulation within the European Union. The impact of the regulation will be far-reaching, as it applies to any company that holds or processes personal data of individuals residing within the European Union.

The penalty for GDPR non-compliance is up to €20M or 4% of annual global turnover. The cost of ignoring GDPR is too high, forcing corporations to revaluate the way they handle consumer data, and to install new processes and technologies enabling the consumers right to “own” their data.

“Nobody really knows what’s going to happen when the clock strikes midnight on May 25,” says Dan Frank, principal with Deloitte Risk and Financial Advisory Cyber Risk Services. “I have heard, speaking to a lot of my EU-based colleagues, that it’s going to take a while for regulatory authorities to conduct their investigations. We may see it take six, eight-whatever months in order for these regulatory actions to come out. Until there’s an incident, you don’t necessarily have a problem.”

In other words, even if you’re late to the game with your GDPR compliance program, you should still get started.
