A new free advice sheet for the fast-growing number of people using iPads and tablets as everyday working tools has been added to our collection. Download A4 PDF Advice Sheet »
It details the steps people should take to mitigate the health risks associated with prolonged use of a tablet computer.
It warns: “Due to the screen and keyboard being in the same place as the tablet – either your head is angled down or your arms are being held up – if extended periods of time are spent typing or inputting information, you will increase the risk of developing neck and upper limb conditions.”
The advisory notes, written by our expert health & safety consultant and trainer Katharine Metters, include seven useful tips to help people use their tablets safely and comfortably.
The tablet advice sheet joins a comprehensive library of learning resources available via our website. These include:
