Virtual Meetings and the use of Mobile Devices
Advice has been requested about the use of mobile devices e.g. hybrids, laptops and i-pad in this climate of increased meetings being conducted via Teams calls.
If a mobile device needs to be used for long periods, then it should be used docked to a large screen and movable keyboard and mouse and with the individual using an appropriate DSE chair.
Suggestions for use when on virtual calls, to promote good wellbeing are:
- have a 5 minute break every hour into a call;
- make sure mobile device is in a comfortable position before starting calls;
- virtual meetings shouldn’t go on for more than 2 hours without a 30 minute break;
- switch off the camera, when possible / appropriate;
- set up your Teams screen so it is comfortable to use;
- if sharing your screen ensure it is enlarged and easy for all to view;
- taking breaks from focusing on the screen when its being shared.
