Workplace Ergonomics and ISO Certification

ISO 6385, ISO 10075 and ISO 27500 certifications allow organizations to take a methodical approach toward meeting approved ergonomic standards. Awareness of the importance of ergonomics in the workplace has grown in recent decades as one solution to problems associated with repetitive and stress-related disorders.

Dangerous or even merely unhealthy work environments feed longer term challenges that are harmful to employees and costly to employers. The American Institute of Stress cites multiple studies showing that 40 percent of employees find their job very stressful, and 25 percent view their jobs as the main source of stress in their lives. This stress leads to more health problems, higher levels of absenteeism and employee fatigue, and disengagement directly tied to productivity.

Workplace Ergonomics Are Important to the Solution

Against this backdrop the importance of ergonomics in the workplace cannot be overstated. ISO certifications give organizations a path toward standardized and professionally vetted ergonomic solutions. ISO certifications vary greatly in scope and scale, and the organization does not provide guidelines for the amount of time to receive certification. Prior participants suggest starting with the assumption that it will take roughly a year.

ISO 6385, Ergonomic principles in the design of work systems, is a good starting place by establishing ergonomic basics to enhance the work environment. It covers many job types from physical, blue collar workers in industrial settings to hospital workers to office workers who spend most of their working day at a desk.

How Durable Are FlexiSpot Desktops?

When it comes to choosing the perfect desktop surface for your new electric standing desk, durability is one of the most important features you can shop for. But, how exactly do you measure durability? Well, we think a good field test does the trick. So, we recently put a standard FlexiSpot desktop through a four-part durability test to see how it stood up to a little abuse. Here’s what we discovered.


Test #1: Scratch Test

Customers often ask how susceptible FlexiSpot desktop surfaces are to scratches. It’s a smart question since scratches take away from the desk’s beauty. They also make tasks that require a smooth surface, like writing and drawing, more challenging.


For our scratch test, we didn’t hold back. We grabbed a stainless steel fork from the kitchen and repeatedly scraped the prongs along the surface of the desk.


Result: Despite our best efforts, the fork didn’t leave behind a single scratch.



Test #2: Weight Capacity Test

With multiple monitors, desk accessories, a full-size keyboard, a mouse and paperwork, it’s easy for a desktop to fill up with stuff quickly. With that in mind, it’s no surprise that one of the first questions customers ask is: “How much weight can a FlexiSpot desktop support?”.


To help answer that question, we tested to see what would happen when a 178-lb man stood on the desktop and moved around a bit. While the technical specifications on the FlexiSpot
