Re: Health & Safety at Work Act
Please have an upvote, and my wholehearted agreement. Laptops are the scourge of decent posture. As someone with such poor eyesight that it's impossible to get a proper ergonomic computer position, I deal with it by changing position a lot, only using the top half of the screen (to keep my head/neck at the best angle), having my monitor on a weird looking stand, and using a tablet when I can. Laptops are horrible for me.
But the effort it takes to get people in the office to do it properly, and not hunch up over their laptops, like Gollum gloating over The Precious... I had one guy stretching and making ouch noises every ten minutes for a month before I could persuade him to get a mouse, keyboard and laptop stand. Problem instantly solved.
Also, if your chair's wobbling and falling apart, don't be a cheapskate. Fix it or get a new one. It may cost money, but it's cheaper than getting a new back.
