The explosion of access to mobile technology has brought about a sea change in where work gets done. Today work is crossing over into homes, cafes, airports, hotels and placesin between. Through our research we observed how thefreedom of mobile working has led people to seek out places that provide support for their mobile tools, as well as for their physical and emotional comfort. This has placed new expectations and demands on the workplace. Our research uncovers insights and opportunities for designers to address the challenges posed by the new work day.

CSA Z412-17 Office Ergonomics – An application standard for workplace ergonomics has undergone a major overhaul since the last edition was published in 2000. As a standard (previously a guideline), it is intended to be suitable for adoption into jurisdictional regulations. CSA Z412-17 contains high level requirements as well as detailed requirements for the application of ergonomics in office workspaces including furniture, accessories, equipment, layout and use, environmental conditions, psychosocial workplace factors and psychological health. The standard applies to all office users in office workspaces in new and existing buildings.
