Lots of conversations in other industries re: standing desks and the health benefits for staff. Has anywhere tried standing benches for techs?

My bench is 90 cm high, standing is comfortable and easy to work at ( same height as a kitchen work top ), using PC long term is not so nice standing so I have a chair with a longer gas strut so sitting at said bench is also comfortable. I don't think I could work all day standing or work at a desk level bench. The mix seems healthy to me.

I have always preferred to stand at the workbench (as those who have worked alongside may be willing to attest).

But when writing (not that I do a lot of that these days), I really need to be sitting at a desk.

Nowadays, most of my work is done at the computer keyboard; I often put in two sessions a day, each usually lasting for five hours or more ... both standing at a 90 cm worktop (although I admit that 100, or even 110, would be more comfortable).

When using one of my internet PCs (like now), I sit at a computer desk ... but find that I slump down (poor posture) if I'm at it for too long. frown

Surely it is no secret that "the answer" to prolonged work in a fixed position (whether standing or sitting) is to take plenty of (hopefully short) breaks! smile


If you don't inspect ... don't expect.
