Safe Sense

If you have height adjustable tables you are probably out of compliance!

According to ANSI/HFES 100 Human Factors Engineering of Computer Workstations section Pinch Points:

Pinch points, in which fingers, arms, and legs can be caught between movable surfaces or parts, shall:

  • Be avoided by means of design or guarding

In adjustable workstation furniture, surfaces move relative to one another. This may lead to pinchpoint hazards in which fingers, arms, or legs can be caught between moving surfaces or parts. This can occur, for example, when a motorized work surface moves past a fixed surface or when clearance between a seat adjustment lever and the bottom of the seat is inadequate. The size of the clearance gap necessary to avoid pinch points will depend on which limb might be involved, but it can be determined with reference to the appropriate 95th percentile male dimension.

The recommended hierarchy of procedures to avoid pinch points is to:

  • Design to eliminate the hazard
  • Guard against the hazard
  • Provide warning labels and instructions to users for safe operation
