In recent years, the use of digital devices has completely changed our work spaces. Although it has made many tasks easier to perform and workplaces more efficient, it also potentially health issues for workers. Workers who spend most of their day sitting at a desk working are prone to strains and other injuries related to poor posture.
That’s why it is vital to regularly monitor the health of computer users and review the management of risks.
Education for workers to manage work spaces and work stations are not only relevant in an office or to people sitting at computer workstations. Repetitive tasks, seating positions, machinery operation; it's all critical in managing worker health.
Our work station assessment solutions are comprehensive and can be developed to suit your teams and their working environment. Our team will assess workstation set-up and demonstrate workplace ergonomic exercises if required. We will also encourage early reporting of discomfort and injury and provide a report on requirements to minimise risks within your organisation.
Ergonomic workstation assessments are carried out to identify and prevent pain and discomfort to reduce the incidence of OOS (Occupational Overuse Syndrome) or RSI (Repetitive Strain Injury). This can improve productivity and job satisfaction, leading to improved outcomes for your business and your workers.
