People working in offices spend the largest part of their working time in a sitting position, i.e. a posture causing considerable strain. Injuries resulting from sitting for long periods are a serious occupational health and safety problem. The quality of office chairs is of great importance for workers' health, well-being, and labour efficiency. This booklet provides information and criteria  for good office chairs. It is easy to understand and illustrated with appealing pictures. A checklist helps you to find a suitable work chair for you and your employees.
