There may be a risk of serious physical injuries from working at your computer workstation.

Some studies have suggested that long periods of typing, improper workstation setup, incorrect work habits, stressful
work conditions and relationships, or problems in your personal health may be linked to injuries. These injuries could
include carpal tunnel syndrome, tendonitis, tenosynovitis, and other musculoskeletal disorders.

The warning signs of these disorders can occur in the hands, wrists, arms, shoulders, neck, or back, and can include:
❒ Numbness, burning, or tingling
❒ Soreness, aching, or tenderness
❒ Pain, throbbing, or swelling
❒ Tightness or stiffness
❒ Weakness or coldness

Symptoms may be felt during typing, while using a mouse, or at other times when no work with the hands is being
performed, including during the night when these
symptoms might awaken you. If you experience these symptoms, or any other persistent or recurring pain or discomfort
that you think may be related to using a computer, you should promptly consult a qualified physician and, if available, your
company’s health and safety department. The earlier a problem is properly
diagnosed and treated, the less chance there is that it will progress to a disabling condition.

HP created a “Safety & Comfort Guide” that describes proper workstation setup,
posture, and health and work habits for computer users. In addition, it also contains product safety information applicable
to all HP products. This guide can be downloaded from the internet at http://www.hp.com/ergo
