Being seated has become the way the majority works in our society – regardless of whether they are employed in the production, service or research sector. This is why a stronger focus needs to be placed on seating for your employees. Legislators have enacted strict guidelines, and ergonomic attributes also provide guidance on which office chairs from the product range offered by KAISER+KRAFT might be suitable for you.
Ever since occupational health and safety hat become a hotly discussed topic, the attitudes to configuring workplaces have changed:
We've put together the Guidelines for workstation equipment to provide you with orientation when making your choice. As an employer, you are well advised to follow them. They will give you rough guidelines on what an optimally adapted swivel chair should be able to do.
Everything about the office chair should cater to the employees' needs and their physical requirements. And this, in turn, means that the chair should be able to be adjusted as flexible as possible.
The height, in combination with the weight, of an employee is a major factor:
When it comes to adjustment, the more elements that can be adjusted, the better the office chair is. Premium products, for example, offer:
When it comes to choosing materials or colours, you should base your choice on design specifications whenever possible. However, sitting on fabric is different to sitting on leather or vinyl. Smooth materials such as leather are easier to clean and suggest higher quality, while fabrics breathe more actively – in particular as an airy mesh back rest.
And don't forget that the castors for the office chair need to be designed for hard or soft floor coverings respectively – if you get those mixed up, you're risking damaging the floor, and a rolling motion that is everything other than smooth.
More tips can, for example, be found in our Encyclopaedia of healthy sitting in the office.
