Hello I work in las Vegas Nevada in a call center. Our workstations are set up in a way which do not allow us to adjust the height of our chairs because the chairs often don't work were required in our job to type on a keyboard that can be as much as 12 inches higher 6 inches lower the 5 inches higher than it should be in order for us to sit there with our arm out straight which can cause all kinds of problems for operators logging in information on the calls we make how do OSHA
laws apply to this situation and is there anything I can do to make my workplace better
JA: Was this discussed with a manager, HR, or an attorney?
Customer: I am sending this question once again I work in a call center in the course of my job I use a phone headset and a computer with a keyboard my problem is that often we cannot or I cannot sit comfortably at my station and use the keyboard effectively sometimes the chairs don't work they don't adjust to get me to the height that I need to in order to reach my keyboard comfortably there is no way to adjust the high of the keyboard we are required during a call to take notes that those notes take place on a keyboard or why the use of a keyboard I use voice recognition software so please excuse any grammatical errors some days I can't even see the keys on the keyboard because I am sitting so low in a chair that doesn't fit my work station and doesn't adjust and it's not just one cures many so the angle from my elbow to my wrist is over 45 degrees sometimes isn't this a violation of motion in some way I mean its not ergonomically set up is there anything that I can do to help make the situation in a better is there any person or place I can go to who can help me with us my email is SM as a Mary Anfield
