D) When working at a standing workstation it is important for each employee to stand in an ergonomically correct position :keeping the head, neck, torso and legs approximately in line and vertical to prevent shoulder and neck strain :Using a footrest to shift weight from foot to foot :Wearing shoes that provide proper support :Keeping key objects such as a telephone, stapler or printed materials close to the body to prevent excessive stretching.
