  • Subject of issue
    • Can the employer avoid financial losses through proper organization of office work
      Often, despite the proper arrangement of the position, the employees themselves make changes, which can worsen their or their colleagues' working conditions. Examples of this can be curtains or blinds on the windows that are constantly covered, switching off general lighting and using only workplace lighting, improper positioning of the office chair, moving monitors without maintaining the required distances and much more. Office work, although performed at a low energy cost and treated as light, in inappropriate conditions can become a source of many nuisances leading to deterioration of the health and general physical or mental condition of the employee. Unfortunately, most Polish employers do not provide their employees with appropriate working conditions, thus exposing them to serious illnesses, a decrease in motivation, and thus also financial losses for the company. And what about the situation when working at home? Do teleworkers perform their tasks taking into account the principles of ergonomics?
    • Soon a new model book of the operator of working machines
