Ergonomics for a Healthier Work Day

Ergonomics for a Healthier Work Day

At OEX, we believe in promoting best practice to make your workplace as healthy as it can be.  One of the best ways to support employee health is by understanding ergonomics and providing the right tools to minimize avoidable health issues.  

What is Ergonomics?  Ergonomics can be defined as the “science of fitting the task to the worker…”  The average office worker sits approximately 10 hours per day.  Sitting for a prolonged period of time, generally more than 2 hours at a time, can cause a myriad of issues in our bodies.

Peek Behind the Curtain

Peek Behind the Curtain

I can’t believe I’ve been writing the OEX blog for five years! Five! We started in September 2014 with the hope that the articles would be informative, helpful, interesting and fun for our readers. The Wizard of OEX was created as our online persona and I’ve had a blast writing from “behind the curtain.” I’ve shared my thoughts on a variety of topics and have given you product reviews, how-to-guides and some just plain goofy stuff.

I’ll bet right now after reading that first paragraph, you think this is my farewell post ,

New Product: Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll

New Product:  Scotch Flex & Seal Shipping Roll

Every business needs to mail larger envelopes and packages - some of us more frequently than others - and it can be frustrating and annoying when you don’t have the right size box or padded mailer for the item you need to send.

3M has introduced a new product that it says eliminates the need for boxes, styrofoam/padding, tape and envelopes. It’s called Flex and Seal Shipping Roll and it’s composed of three layers - an outer waterproof layer, a middle bubble layer and the inside adhesive layer.

Trivia Contest - Win a Prize!

Trivia Contest - Win a Prize!

I’m not a huge fan of reality TV, which seems to be in conflict with most of the rest of America. I used to watch a few reality shows, but I’m tired of it. It’s run it’s course and I’m ready to say goodbye. Except for one show - The Masked Singer.

I LOVE this show! It’s such a different twist from the rest of the reality music shows like American Idol, The Voice and X-Factor. I watched the first show and was hooked - I can’t wait for next season! Today I want to see how many of you share my enthusiasm. So…..our topic today is:

Design Your Own Custom Stamp!

It’s been almost two years since we introduced our new online custom stamp ordering site and we’ve received a lot of great compliments on the site from those of you who are using it. We love hearing your feedback - thank you for sending it to us!

Two common questions we get are: 1) How do I get to the site? and 2) Why doesn’t it recognize me when I try to login on the checkout page? Give me just a few minutes of your time and I’ll answer those for you - it’s super easy.

An Invisible Dry-Erase Board

An Invisible Dry-Erase Board

Did I pique your curiosity with that title? I hope so!

There are many options when it comes to dry-erase boards. You can get the basic melamine, or go to steel, porcelain on steel, porcelain or glass. Choose from economy grade, extensive use or heavy use. Do you need magnetic? Wood frame or aluminum frame? And what size?

Ay, yi, yi!

Well, guess what? Now you don’t need a dry-erase board to have a dry-erase board in your office! How does that work, you ask?
