Ergonomic Assessments & Training

Poor ergonomic work practices or poorly designed workstations can play a significant role in the development of many preventable musculoskeletal disorders including neck and back pain, shoulder and arm pain, headaches and repetitive injury strains.

Sitting for long periods each day has been shown to have catastrophic effects on health and wellbeing, putting workers at increased risk of diabetes, heart conditions, obesity, stroke, as well as postural muscle aches and pains.

Ergonomic Assessment Quote

  • Comprehensive:
    Comprehensive workstation assessments are most commonly used when an employee is returning to work following a prolonged period off or following an injury. Assessment takes approximately 40 minutes. Once completed a detailed report is prepared outlining key findings, any changes made and recommendations for equipment and other advice provided to the worker.

    Proactive:
    20 minutes assessments at an employee’s workstation. Modifications are made as required and advice around self-management, stretches and exercises is discussed. Short summary report prepare with general observations and comments for client at the conclusion of the session.

    Workshops:
    A interactive sessions, designed to deliver practical ergonomic education and advice in a “real world” setting. 30 minute blocks in small groups (up to 6 people) learn the principles of setting up their workstation. After the practical demonstration, employees can immediately apply these learnings to their own workstation, whilst the Occupational Health Professional is available to answer any specific ergonomic questions.
