Some suggestions to create an effective and safe workspace:
A dedicated space – Ideally, you would use a small room that can hold a desk and computer equipment and those door can be shut for the essential need to separate work life from home life.
Proper work height – The industry standard is 29 inches from the floor to the top of the work surface.
Proper monitor height – Generally speaking, check your computer’s video specs and get a monitor whose display resolution matches its maximum capability.
A good chair – Be sure to get one with adjustable height, that can roll, that provides lumbar support for the lower back, and ideally has adjustable seat pan tilt, arm height, and lateral arm position.
Good lighting – Indirect lighting means lights not in your direct field of view or reflecting off your monitor.
Good internet service – 50Mbps is the minimum speed to shoot for, and the more people using the internet at the same time, the more you want to get a higher-speed service.
The bandwidth within your home matters too. The best connections are wired Ethernet ones, so if possible, connect your computer to your router via an Ethernet cable; that’s especially important if you do video or other bandwidth-intensive work. Wi-Fi is fine for basic office work, so if you can’t wire your computer to your router, use Wi-Fi.
Other equipment – keyboard, mouse, touchpad, headset
A docking station – is a great to have if you use a laptop, so you can plug the computer into the dock and leave all the other connections alone, then easily remove the laptop when you are working elsewhere such as for business travel or an in-office visit.
Multifunction printer, copier, scanner
Surge protector and/or Uninterruptible power supply (UPS) – If the power goes out, computer equipment is usually unharmed, but if you live in a stormy area, there’s a small chance you might get a power surge that could damage your computer equipment. A power strip with a built-in surge protector is an inexpensive insurance policy for that rare event.
