Reduce pain, injury and insurance claims while improving staff morale and productivity with workstation ergonomic training and assessments by our industry-leading health professionals

1. Ergonomic Workstation Desk Setup Training Course

One of the unseen sources that cost businesses time and money every year is poor workstation ergonomics which can be improved with workstation ergonomic assessment and training. An uncomfortable employee cannot focus and engage with their work to the degree that they would like to when their mind is on the pain in their lower back, or strain on their wrists. Ergonomics in the workplace is, therefore, a key part of achieving targets and retaining staff. Use this course to up-skill your employees to enable safe and correct workstation setup.

2. Vehicle & Driver Ergonomic Assessment

Workers required to perform their duties in a poorly designed space are destined for injury. If your team is sitting in a car often, driving as part of the job or manual handling to and from a vehicle, it is essential that it be adjusted to fit them with a vehicle ergonomic assessment. It pays to be proactive in preventing injuries instead of waiting until a worker files a claim.

  • Manage and assess vehicle ergonomic hazards and risks which may expose workers to strain or injury
  • Educate your workforce on vehicle ergonomics who drive or complete work from a vehicle regularly
  • Match workers to suitable vehicles for their work tasks and individual characteristics
  • Ensure injuries are not aggravated by mismatches between worker capacity and driving volumes

Vehicle Ergonomic Assessment Benefits For Employees

  • Improved driving comfort levels and awareness through a driver ergonomic assessment
  • Reduced risk of developing vehicle-related ergonomic injuries in the workplace
  • Improved vehicle ergonomic match both for the individual and team
  • Greater worker engagement and consultation within the workplace leading to improved workplace culture
