SUPPORTING WELLBEING IN THE WORKPLACE

In any workplace, the bottom line is the health and wellbeing of its workers. A health-conscious workplace protects the company’s most significant investment and ensures the greatest productivity, efficiency, and innovation possible.

Ology Bench supports the physiology and biology of workers to make the workplace a more health-conscious environment.

Posture

Posture

Improving the physiology of work

Ology height-adjustable bench makes it easy to change worksurface height and posture, and its convenient, intuitive controls encourage more health-conscious behaviors.

The geometric H-shape of the side frame provides a clean desk aesthetics, without boundaries between workstations.

Adjust the worksurface to any height or to one of four programmed heights, including a comfortable standing collaboration height.

Ergonomics

Ergonomics Tailored to Individual Needs

Ology is available with an integrated rail that supports space division, lighting, power and worktools, which can all be customised to meet the specific needs and workstyles of the user.

An optional soft edge profile helps to:

  • significantly reduce unhealthy pressure on forearms, and
  • reduce feelings of shoulder and neck fatigue.

Biology to Benefit Worklpace Wellbeing

Microbes populate the desktop, and 80% of infections can be transmitted by touch. Ology is available with proprietary Bactiblock®, a naturally sourced and highly efficient antimicrobial protection, molded into desk components.

This durable and long-lasting protection for the most frequently touched areas of the worksurface supports the wellbeing of each and every user of Ology.

Workplace Wellbeing

Wellbeing is a dual challenge. Effects on user physiology and biology may result in increased absenteeism, decreased productivity, chronic disability and a decline in organizational performance.

Physiology

People are simply not moving enough throughout their workday. In fact, adults are sitting 50-70% of the time. This sedentary workstyle poses long-term physical challenges, from back and neck pain to repetitive stress injuries.

Biology

72% of Workers Report to Work When Sick.

Workers are also increasingly mobile, sharing desks, collaborating constantly and exposed to the millions of microbes on office worksurfaces.

Ology: Designing a Desk Wellbeing

Ology is an important part of an environment that embraces a Palette of Posture and Place. Workers should move between postures, including standing postures. And they need a desk that will allow them to do that. Ology is a wellbeing partner and contributes to a health-conscious work environment.

How antimicrobial properties make a health-conscious workplace

Due to mobility of workers, desks are more and more shared. Steelcase believes that antimicrobial technologies can help and has equipped its new desk Ology with an advanced antimicrobial technology on the most touched points on the desk surface.
