In the context of hybrid working, Maastricht University offers you as an employee the opportunity to purchase furniture for working from home. The selected furniture meets the minimum health and safety requirements and NEN standards, so that you can be sure that you are also equipped with good furniture at home so that you can work optimally. You can use this webshop, where the pre-selected office chairs and desk are available. Create an account via the button below (this is only possible with the UM e-mail address and enter webshopcode 1234) and follow the further steps to order your working from home furniture. It is important that you enter the budgetnumber, which can be found on your working-from-home contract, in the 'order reference' field.
*Note: without a fully completed and signed health and safety checklist and working-from-home contract, we cannot process your order and it will be rejected. So it makes no sense to go through the ordering process anyway.
Please note: you're logging in to the Ahrend webshop. Please read the applicable privacy rules.
The importance of ergonomics
We sit too often and too long: during breakfast, in the car, during lunch. Because sitting makes us tired, we plop down on the sofa in the evening. In conclusion: we move too little, which is very stressful for our body. In many cases it is also the cause of back, neck and arm pain. Therefore it is important to alternate between sitting and standing. The right ergonomic office chair and desk can help you to stay fit throughout your working day.
Create an inspiring home workplace
Tip 1: Organize your stuff. After all, a clean desk means a clear head.
Tip 2: Decorate with plants. They provide extra oxygen and relaxation.
Tip 3: Hang a pin board. Surround yourself with inspiring photos, quotes and remind yourself of your goals for this year.
Tip 4: Ensure good lighting. A desk lamp with warm light compensates for the blue light of your screen.
