Sustained Work

No matter how well your workstation is set up, you should take frequent breaks. These breaks in your work are important as they help you to avoid fatigue. Frequent ergo-breaks are important when you perform sustained, intensive, or highly repetitive work. Even if you just change positions, or stand up and stretch at your workstation, it will help.

When working at your computer, it is recommended that you take a short break at least once each hour. These breaks can be from 30 seconds to five minutes and can go a long way toward reducing fatigue. If you do take a short break from your workstation, don't just go somewhere else to sit. It is more beneficial to get up and move around. For example, stand while taking a phone call. Stand while having a face-to-face conversation with a colleague. Go make copies at the copy machine. Or just take a break from the keyboard and change your position in your chair and read mail or other documentation.
