The workforce at your dispatch centers, distributions control rooms, gas operations, control rooms, power generation, and transmission control rooms needs to be on, 24/7. Are they? One way to tell is by looking at your utility control room furniture. It’s one of the key indicators of productivity and performance.
Why Ergonomics Matters in Your Power Plant Furniture or Command Center
Continuous monitoring of critical systems, especially in a power plant or command center setting, can cause fatigue and declining alertness over the course of a shift. To help your operators maintain their high levels of performance, not just at the beginning of their shift but throughout its entirety, you need to make sure you have the right furniture.
Ergonomics is the key to creating an environment that is comfortable and will help you maintain a productive and successful team. Not only that, but the right workstations will help prevent injury resulting from strain on the necks, backs, eyes, and joints of your team members. We can make sure your furniture is up to par, so you can make sure your team is at the top of their game, all the time.
Continuous Motion and Your SCADA Control Room or Emergency Command Center
When your organization is reliant on your SCADA control room or Emergency Command Center to keep your networked data communications and interfaces fully functional, you need to make sure the techs and operators who are overseeing these systems aren’t suffering from repetitive motion injuries.
Monitoring the peripheral devices, issuing commands, and interfacing with the power plant machinery might seem like an easy task from a comfortable control room. But if your furniture is wrong, your employees’ repetitive motions are going to cause damage. Repetitive motion is one of the most common reasons for worker’s compensation claims, and they are usually a direct result of poorly designed and improperly furnished control room workspaces.
