Workstation Ergonomic Checks

What we know?

  1. On average, 95% of an office workers' day is spent sitting in front of the computer.
  2. Musculoskeletal injuries resulting from poor workplace ergonomics account for 34% of all lost workday injuries and illnesses.
  3. 4 out of 10 carpal tunnel cases result in more than 30 days away from work.
  4. Correct workstation ergonomics can increase productivity on average (2) .

Ergonomics in the workplace is crucial for job efficiency, workplace health, productivity and reducing the risk of developing repetitive stress injuries, and keeping company morale high.

Task Analysis

Evaluating an individual’s work process, such as worker rotation, task variety, job organization and demands will help identify and manage risk and also improve productivity.

Prevent Workstation Injury

Enabling employees to have the skills to address the physical setup of their workstation and the tools they can use to reduce their risk of discomfort and / or injuries

Optimise Productivity

Applying correct ergonomic principles, data and methods can optimize human well-being and overall system performance

The Workstation ErgoCHECK uses our unique and systematic ‘12 Point’ workstation assessment to quickly identify an individual’s workstation risks to musculoskeletal disorders.

The worker receives a summary report outlining suggested modifications and where new/replacement equipment is warranted we provide recommendations directly to management.

The Workstation ErgoCHECK is designed as a preventative management tool. If a worker has a specific injury management need, a more detailed assessment can be arranged.

What to expect?

  1. One–to-one review of an individual’s workstation with consideration to any personal injury health history and importantly their work requirement and work flow
  2. Making on the spot adjustments and modifications to a workers workstation
  3. Workstation ErgoCheck Report for each individual
  4. Management report briefly summarising the actions completed and further recommendations for action by the worker as per the Workstation ErgoCheck Reports

*Preparatory review of the office layout and general workstation equipment - this allows for training preparation and familiarisation for customisation of training content and for the development of an effective practical component to the training.
