Because even a two-drawer wood lateral file cabinet can accommodate reams of paper without hogging too much floor space, they are a top pick for home offices, medical offices, schools, government agencies, and any office that is required to hold large quantities of paper files. A Wood Lateral File Cabinet seems to enjoy more popularity than its cousin, the standard vertical Wood File Cabinet. They may be more sturdy due to the weight but at any rate they seem to do the job intended and are especially popular in the legal and medical professions. The Wood Lateral File Cabinet pictured is labeled as a Laminate Wood Lateral File Cabinet, 3 Drawer and Four Drawer and is marked with a hefty retail price of over $3900.00. It is a bit pricey but you have a choice of 24 colors (see color chart below) and it looks more like a built in cabinet instead of a normal wood lateral file cabinet.
The right chair combined with ergonomic training can also reduce workplace injuries. Even if you do not already have wrist or back problems, an ergonomic chair can help you maintain the right posture to avoid strain, carpel tunnel syndrome, lower back pain, and spinal disc injury. The National Institute of Health recommends choosing a chair with all of the necessary adjustments to support proper posture. This includes a chair with casters and a five-point base; a seat pan with dense, small-cell foam padding or coils; a backrest that is either curved or small enough to fit the small of the back; soft armrests with an adjustable height and width; a hydraulic seat heat adjustment feature; and a tilt adjustment to transfer some body weight to the chair’s backrest.Embody Chair by Herman Miller If you’re not working with a budget, why not get the very best? The Embody Chair by Herman Miller is the first chair made with a health-positive design. It was designed by Bill Stumpf, who created the original Aeron chair, and Jeff Weber with a goal of supporting healthy circulation and making sitting for hours a day easier on the back and spine. Physicians and engineers were also consulted to create the specifications for the Embody, which features a unique exposed exoskeleton made to mimic the human spine. The chair’s back moves with you throughout the day, keeping your spine in alignment and supporting the lower back, all without any adjustments on your part.

Accessibility to Clients and Employees Unlike some kinds of office furniture, reception desk furniture should be open and allow visitors to easily interact with the receptionist. The desk needs to be big enough so that items can be worked on without taking over the entire desk area. The ideal reception desk furniture would have an extra wide surface so that the receptionist can work on one half of the desk while visitors comfortably write notes or other communications on the other half of the desk. A wide desk also provides some privacy for the receptionist if he or she is working on something that is of a more confidential nature.
