Jun 14, 2020
Over the last few months, numerous black people throughout the United States have been killed at the hands of police, as well as those who seek to divide. There is a lot of trauma in the black community right now and many artists are trying to represent that in the most tasteful ways possible. H.E.R. is one of those artists as recently, she released the music video for her 2019 track "I'm Not OK." While the song is older, the video certainly speaks to what is going on right now.

World physiotherapy response to COVID –19, setting up a Temporary home office:
Recommendation to workstation ergonomics practice
09 September 2020
INDUSTRIAL OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH AGENCY Ltd (IOSHA ltd)
Working at home amidst COVID-19 pandemic means having no time and little opportunity to set up ergonomically sound workstations. Individuals have to adapt home environment to perform their job duties. However, this pose a threat to their health especially when working in such environment where the interaction with other things such as family members and the associated circumstances makes the work less safe. But this cannot stop us from practicing a safety culture no matter what circumstance.
So, what can office workers do to make their home table workspaces as comfortable as possible? We turn to Industrial Occupational Safety and Health Agency (IOSHA) for advice.
Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, workplaces across Rwanda have undergone a massive change at a scope and speed we have rarely experienced. Practically overnight, office workers from various workplaces across the country were told to pack up their files and documents and work from their homes. Many have had to fashion workstations out of dining tables, TV couches and kitchen chairs all on the fly, and often in cramped or shared spaces with their families, neighbours and / or communities.
In ordinary circumstances, remote office workers would need the right adjustable equipment to work in comfort and health. But during this period, we don’t have ordinary days. The worst advice can be to tell workers to touch on their daily living budgets to buy new fancy safe workstations, instead teaching them to manage and use available resources in a safe and healthily way.
So, what can an employee do to make the workstation as ergonomically sound as possible, with the things an individual might find around the house?
We turned to INDUSTRIAL OCCUPATIONAL SAFETY AND HEALTH AGENCY (IOSHA) Scientists for Advice, Dr NUHU Assuman, who is trained in Physiotherapy and specialized in Sports Medicine and Rehabilitation and in charge of Training, Capacity Building and Advocacy Program and Research Program at IOSHA, NDAHIRIWE Chance Christian, who’s trained in Clinical Biomechanics and Kinesiology, in charge of IOSHA Special Care program, and BYIRINGIRO Etienne, a Clinical Orthopaedics Physiotherapist, Workstation ergonomics and Occupational Safety and Health Management, Managing Director at IOSHA. They provide an online and onsite training module on Office workstation ergonomics.
They recommended and suggested what can be done by workers to be safe and productive without discomfort.
Aim for a neutral sitting posture
While there is no single correct working posture for computer work, one common and relatively easy-to-achieve neutral working posture includes the following:
· feet flat, on a sturdy surface
· knees at 90-degree angle (the seat is at or below knee height)
· hips at 90-degree angle
· elbows at 90-degree angle
· wrists straight, in a neutral posture
· Neck straight, eyes looking slightly down into top third of computer/laptop screen.
· Work in standing positions with joints held in neutral position
If you can easily change the height of your chair or work surface to achieve neutral hip, knee and wrist postures, then do so. If not, here are some step-by-step tips on how to achieve that:
· Since you may not be able to change the height of your work surface (e.g. your kitchen table), let’s start here. Place your open laptop (or computer monitor, if using a desktop) on your work surface.
· Now set up your chair to achieve a neutral (straight) wrist posture while typing at the laptop. If your chair is too low (which is more likely to be the case than too high), put a pillow or folded towel on your chair so you are sitting high enough to type with your wrists straight.
· This can also make your chair a lot more comfortable to sit on.
· If your chair seat is too deep to allow you to use the backrest for support while still keeping your knees a few inches in front of the seat edge, try using a rolled towel to provide lumbar support. Place the rolled towel between your chair and lower back (in the “small of your back”). This is especially helpful for reducing slouching and preventing lower back pain.
· Now, sitting on your chair, if you cannot (or barely) reach the floor with your feet flat, use a footrest to raise them. Use a makeshift one like a big thick book, as long as what you choose is sturdy. If your chair seat is too low, consider the pillow solution noted above IF you can maintain the correct elbow angle.
· When setting up the computer monitor, aim for a neutral posture for your neck. Place the screen about an arm’s length in front of you, at a height that’s just below eye level. You should be looking slightly downward at the top third of your screen. This won’t be possible if you’re using a laptop (see more on that below).
· If you wear glasses with progressive lenses, you may wish to start with an arm’s length distance (as noted above), but adjust accordingly to reduce eye strain. If you view your computer screen through the lower part of your glasses, you should lower the monitor and/or tilt the screen, so your neck posture is neutral.
Using a laptop
If you’re using a laptop, placing your laptop at the distance and height discussed above will raise your keyboard. This will cause you to reach awkwardly with much less than 90 degrees at the elbow and put strain on your shoulders. The truth is: laptops cannot offer an ergonomically sound solution that allows for a neutral posture for both your neck and wrists. Either the monitor is going to be too low or the keyboard will be too high.
Here are a few options to consider when using a laptop:
· Ensure a neutral position for your wrists first, then tilt the screen up to allow a comfortable gaze angle. This is generally considered the best way to go, given the non-adjustable limitations of laptops.
· You can also change the laptop height depending on the work you are doing. If you are reading, place your laptop on something sturdy and tall enough that the top of the laptop is just below eye level. (Make sure that the surface you use to raise your laptop is stable and cannot be easily knocked over.) Remember to move your laptop back to allow for a neutral wrist position for typing and navigation (i.e. using your track pad or mouse).
· If you have a standalone keyboard (USB or wireless) to use with your laptop, then you can place your laptop screen at the height appropriate for your neck (remember to place it on something sturdy), while using the keyboard at the appropriate height for your wrists. In this set-up, you should also use a wireless mouse or track pad for navigation (at the same height as the keyboard).
And here is the most important advice: Make sure to take breaks or change your working posture often. You should take breaks for about three to five minutes, ideally once every 30-45 minutes or every 60 minutes at a minimum.
This is especially important if you cannot set up a workstation that allows you to achieve a neutral posture. In that case, you should vary your posture at least every 30 minutes. To remind yourself to take these breaks, set a timer using your cell phone.
Or Respect the 20-20-20 Rule of safety
One way to change your posture is to work while standing for a while. Note, though, that it is even more challenging to ensure neutral positions for the neck, the wrists and elbows when setting up a standing desk. You might want to use your standing time for reading or attending meetings. You should minimize the time typing, writing or navigating while in a standing posture if you do not have a separate keyboard and mouse. Stand for no more than 45 minutes at a time.
For more in-depth information on setting up an ergonomically sound workstation, don’t forget about IOSHA workstation Ergonomics training program which can be provided online. And remember, while the advice offered in this article may be helpful temporarily as we try to halt the spread of the coronavirus, if you work from home on a more permanent basis, you will need adjustable office equipment.
Additional tips from IOSHA Team
In addition to above article, the Industrial Occupation Safety and Health Agency team provide more tips on safe and healthy work-from-home practices. Below are a few of their tips:
· Don’t be tempted by the portability of laptops into working anywhere in the house. Set up one or two dedicated workspaces to get a consistent arrangement.
· Use bar stools with plenty of caution. Even though you might like the height of your kitchen counters for working, on a prolonged basis, bar stools offer very little back and foot support.
· Neck, shoulder and back strains may be caused by sitting off-centre before a screen and by having poor keyboard placement. Your monitor should be centred with your body. If you have a portable keyboard, the “h” key on your keyboard should line up with the middle of your body and the middle of your monitor.
· Use hands-free options as much as you can to give your neck and arms a break. Use the speaker, ear buds or a Bluetooth headset during phone calls and teleconferences.
· Stand for teleconferences or phone calls and walk during parts of them if possible. When standing to work, don’t stand for more than 30-45 minutes at a time.
They also have tips on what to do when you feel aches or pains:
· When your wrist, neck or shoulder begins to ache, try using the mouse with your other hand. Do wrist circles and wrist stretches to get the blood flowing.
· For a tight or achy neck or shoulder, do chin tucks, shoulder rolls and side neck bends.
· If you have lower back sore, stand at least every half hour.
· Extend your lower back to reduce disc bulging. To extend the spine, place hands on lower back, slowly arching backward as far as you can without discomfort. Hold for about five seconds, and return to starting position. Be sure to keep your head in line with your shoulders. (Do not tip head back.)
· When coming out of a flexed (seated) posture, do the same back extensions, and stand or walk to loosen the hips and lower back.
· Take advantage of the opportunity to move and stretch throughout the day. While it may not be appropriate to perform the downward dog in the middle of your busy work environment, you have the freedom to do just that—and stretches of all kinds—at your home workspace.
· Do short bouts of moderate- or high-intensity exercise (exercises that you have difficulty talking through) throughout the day? Examples are jumping jacks, seal jacks, push ups, burped, split squats, full squats and walking lunges (10 to 15 repetitions each , 3 sets each [4 combined non-stop exercises with 1 minute rest interval] . Even short bouts can have the benefit of improving mental health and reducing the risk of cardiovascular diseases when done frequently and consistently.
In case you case you get involved in lifting tasks try to not bend at your back instead use the knees and hips as hinges.
After the Genocide against Tutsi of 1994, following the atrocities, the Government of Rwanda, focused more on providing urgently needed services to community, while long term development programme and strategies took backseat. In 2000, however, H.E Paul Kagame, The President of the Republic of Rwanda, set the country on an agenda of a rapid development that aimed at transforming lives of citizens, reduce poverty, improve governance and promote economic growth and development.
Since 2000, Rwanda adopted strategic vision 2020 for poverty reduction and economic development strategies to reduce the succession of poverty. Necessary policies and strategies were put in place and tools were designed to fast track the implementation. Among different policy established by the Government of Rwanda was Imihigo. Imihigo concept was designed and implemented since 2006 as contract and commitments to achieve particular targets in the District that impact the well being and economic transformation of the citizens. During the signing of the Imihigo, the Mayor commits to such activities as construction of health centers and roads, provision of electricity to local people, safer and clean water and infrastructure development and quality education. Today Imihigo has become an accountability forum where Mayors held accountable to the public in terms of service delivery, economic transformation, social transformation and transformational governance of the citizens. Thus, Imihigo is a yardstick for good governance. Due to the fact that the Imihigo speeds up development of the citizens, it is in vain important to assess the impact of signed Imihigo on the citizen’s transformation lives of all. The impact assessment so entitled “IMIHIGO IMPACT ASSESSMENT REPORT” aimed at assessing the whether the Imihigo of the Kicukiro District in the recent 3 years transformed the lives of the citizens and are sustainable for prosperity. The impact assessment targeted citizens in Kicukiro District who participated in the planning or not of the Imihigo and direct and indirect beneficiaries. The findings revealed that Imihigo are positively and significantly impacting the citizens of Kicukuro District at 87.9 percent. The extent of the impact was determined by the R-squared coefficient using the model of multiple regression.
