    • HAZARDS IN THE WORKPLACE As graphic designers we spend a lot of time working at our computers and at our desks...we are creative people, and there are constant deadlines to be met, but there is a chance that we forget to take care of our own wellbeing. This is our greatest asset so it is important to follow WHS procedures. The best way to deal with workplace hazards is to fix them. Spot the Hazard Assess the risk Fix the problem Evaluate the result 1. backache - set your desk at the correct height 2. bad posture - ensure that your ergonomic chair is adjusted to suit your body size & weight 3. neck strain - position your computer monitor so that your vision is level with the centre of the screen 4.

This is the perfect time to discuss any issues that may need attention so that they may be addressed before developing into a greater problem. We value your input. Minutes are taken and all staff are sent electronic copies for their reference. Updates of any new WHS information and legislation are circulated when they become available.
