The two most basic requirements for a safe chair are:

Adjustable height positions
Adjustable back positions

Personally I have a leather, high back executive style chair - v.v. comfy indeed :)

Ergonomically, my chair is the worst, it is one of our dining room chairs. No adjustments possible. Why do I use it? Simple, however I slouch in it, it makes no noise. My ergonomic computer chair creaks and squeaks whenever I shift position. Now, consider, it is me that cannot sleep at night, the computer, ( and therefore the chair), is right outside the bedroom where my darling wife is sleeping.

Quiet chair, bad back, contented wife, figure...
