Ergonomic Assessments, do you need one?

Do you work long hours sitting at a desk? Are you sore and stiff after work each day? Maybe you’re in need of an Ergonomic Assessment for your workspace! What’s an Ergonomic Assessment you ask?

Ergonomics is the science of designing a workplace, keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the worker. Things like chair height and angles, computer screen placement and keyboard and mouse placement are tailored to place you in the most biomechanically correct position. Poor worksite design leads to you being fatigued, frustrated and sore, which decreases your productivity and can cause painful and costly injuries. 2 out of 3 office workers have reported experiencing discomfort and/or pain after working in an office. The aim of an Office Ergonomic Assessment is to not just assess but also educate individuals on optimal workplace set-up through both practical and theoretical knowledge. Assessments are conducted onsite so that long term management of health and wellbeing at the workplace can be maintained.

At Absolute Balance we base ergonomic assessments on a prevention model designed to improve work performance and reduce the likelihood of Occupational Overuse Syndrome (OOS). Our consultants provide you with knowledge of how to ergonomically set up and maintain your workspace and they ensure you can recognise the symptoms associated with the onset of soft tissue injuries. The assessments generally take 10-15 minutes per workspace and could save you thousands in medical bills in the long run! Why not book yourself one today?
