The method identifies the priority intervention areas in offices, analysing:

  • The characteristics of the chair and how to sit on the chair.
  • The distribution and how to use the monitor and telephone.
  • The distribution and how to use the peripherals, keyboard and mouse.
  • Duration of exposure.


It is a fast and systematic method to assess a workers’ postural risks. The analysis can be carried out before and after an intervention to show that the modifications have been useful in reducing the risk of injuries.
