Which of these is an ergonomic guideline to technology use?

Good positioning and setup of equipment leads to neutral postures, less muscle fatigue and greater productivity. This helps reduce the number and severity of work-related MSDs (musculoskeletal disorders). It also allows people with different abilities, heights or sizes to use the same equipment. Good lighting levels and positioning leads to minimal glare and adequate contrast for fewer visual fatigue issues. Adjustable equipment allows workers to change their postures. These are all a part of the Ergonomics pyramid showing Engineering Controls at the top, Administrative and Work Practice Controls in the middle, and Personal Protective Equipment at the bottom.
