No two people are the same. For instance, the way one person sits at their desk may not be comfortable for someone else which is where ergonomics comes in. It is the process of making the job fit the person, rather than the person fit into the job. Physical requirements, tools used, and other equipment needed to complete a task need to be just right so the employee is comfortable and can do their job effectively. Poor worksite design can lead to stressed, frustrated staff and even injury, such as back pain, stiff neck, and migraines. These are some of the leading causes of staff absence, so it’s vital you make sure your ergonomics are sufficient to prevent avoidable injuries in the workplace.
Our occupational hygiene consultants can carry out an ergonomic assessment in your workplace to identify any issues. We will identify the hazards associated with the activity carried out by your employees and evaluate the risk to your staff. We will be able to inform you of the potential impact on your team and provide your company with a proposal to reduce or mitigate the hazards. We can also offer on onsite employee awareness training so that your staff know about things like posture and chair positions at work.
Let us help you to assess the risk to your employees – get in touch today for more information on how we can help with ergonomics.
