Seating is an import component in designing exceptional work environments.  Providing seating that is designed with ergonomics in mind can be a significant contributor to providing a healthier and more comfortable workplace for your employees.  That is why Toronto Office Furniture leads with seating from quality manufacturers such as Global, who became the first Corporate Member of the Association of Canadian Ergonomists (ACE) in 2001.

Global Accord

We support manufacturers such as Global Total Office, who designs quality products that:
♦ Fit the intended users.
♦ Promote personal comfort and enhance performance while minimizing the safety and health risks associated with today’s workplace.
♦ Keep pace with the rapid development of technologies and quickly changing aspects of the workplace.
♦ Provide customers with up-to-date practical ergonomics information and educational opportunities.
♦ Have an exceptional warranty and servicing policy.

When selecting a chair, it is important to understand and consider what the person using the chair will be doing as well as the attributes of the person themselves.  The features of the chair are important contributors to assessing its ergonomic properties.  Here’s some of the advise that Global offers on how to select a chair:

  1. A contoured backrest will give your back the comfort and support it needs. Pick a chair shaped to match the natural contour of your spine.

  2. Backrests that are height adjustable, providing your back with customized comfort and support.
  3. Don’t go too soft. For total comfort, seat and back foam must be dense enough to support your weight evenly and it should be sculpted to fit the human form.
  4. Look for “waterfall” seat cushions that slope down at the front of the chair. This important ergonomic feature helps improve circulation to your lower legs.
  5. Rest your arms. Armrests help keep your arms in a comfortable position, reducing shoulder, neck and back strain. Height/tilt adjustable models are especially good.
  6. The pneumatic height adjustment on a chair lets you alter your seating position throughout the day with a smooth, easy, one-touch action.
  7. Please remain seated. Make sure all adjustment controls can be reached from a seated position. Keep moving. Multi-tilt and operator mechanisms are important for data entry or computer work. They let you vary your position while maintaining maximum support.
  8. Good chairs have casters for easy mobility. Be sure to get the right kind for your floor. Choose a chair with a choice of casters designed for carpets, hard surfaces or a combination.
