E-Learning Day Health and Safety


You will be spending a lot of time at a PC during E Learning Day. To make sure you stay safe and healthy follow these simple steps.

  • Posture - Make sure that you sit properly at your computer on a suitable chair. If you are able to do so, adjust the height of the chair so your eyes are level with the top of your computer screen.
  • Position - Make sure that you can easily move the mouse and that there is room in front of the keyboard to rest your wrists on while you type.
  • Screen Glare - Try to avoid staring at your computer screen for long periods. Look away from the screen at least every 10 minutes for about a minute or so and take at least a 10 minute break every hour. If your screen is very bright, adjust the brightness control to reduce screen glare. Make sure you follow these simple steps so you can enjoy your E Learning Day.

    Good Luck and don't forget those breaks!
