Many workers may raise an eyebrow at the idea of performing tedious, labor-intensive tasks on an unstable, insufficient work surface. Individuals who work in laboratories, workshops and other industrial or manufacturing environments know the importance of having a work surface that ‘works’ for them. And usually, that work surface is a workbench that is designed specifically for the task at hand. Workbenches come in a variety of sizes and should be selected based on the type of work they are being used for. They can be constructed of hard-wearing materials ranging from steel, plastic or wood and usually provide convenient storage or mounting space to create a multi-functional work area.
Having materials within arms reach is one of the most important functions of a good workbench. When a workflow is kept in a compact, organized space, it enables workers to be more productive while preventing muscle strain or stress. Many workbenches are equipped with bins, shelves, cabinets, drawers and other accessories to allow quick, easy access to necessary parts or tools. Workbenches that feature height adjustable legs can also be beneficial. These benches allow individuals of different heights to elevate or lower the workbench to a comfortable work position. They are also ideal for tasks that require sitting and/or standing for extended lengths of time.
