This session aims to introduce the new Australian Standard for workstation desks, AS/NZS 4442: 2018 Office desks, office workstations and tables intended to be used as office desks – Mechanical, dimensional and general requirements and test methods. We will cover the major changes, improvements and what this means to ergonomic assessors for future implications. Time will be allowed for troubleshooting, so make sure you bring your questions along.
Following the presentation there will be the opportunity to visit the Schiavello showrooms and view their workstation desks and other products.
