What Is An Ergonomic Assessment?
Ergonomic assessment encompasses the optimal set up and layout of workstations, seat positions and work environments to DHE standards. An appropriate ergonomic set up reduces the risk of injury and increases productivity.
Based on the assessment, on-site workstation adjustments will be made where possible to immediately improve workstation ergonomics. Any recommendations on further reasonable adjustments will be made and included in a report.
Why Should You Organise An Ergonomic Assessment For Your Staff?
Apart from it being a legal obligation of an employer to ensure a safe working environment for their employees, it ensures maximum comfort, minimises risk of injury, reduces staff sickness days and improves productivity.
Ergonomic assessments have been shown to reduce claims and costs of work-related injuries by up to 75%! Each year in the UK, work related lower back pain alone costs employers £14bn and results in 31 million days off!
Benefits of having a correct ergonomic set up
For the employer: Reduced costs of employee sick days. Increased staff productivity resulting in increased profit.
For staff: Maximal comfort, minimal risk of exposure to various work-related injuries and overuse syndromes such as lower back pain, neck pain, carpal tunnel, tendinopathies, tennis elbow, shoulder pain and other posture related symptoms.
What Does An Ergonomic Assessment Involve?
Each assessment usually takes 20 to 30 minutes. Completion of the ergonomic assessment is done by a Chartered Occupational Physiotherapist at your workplace in line with DSE Regulations. On-site workstation adjustments, where possible, will be made to immediately improve workstation ergonomics and advice regarding any personal injury management requirements will be provided.
You will receive a full report outlining the ergonomic assessment outcomes, including what on-site adjustments were made and recommendations for any further adjustments and reasonable equipment needed. Please note that recommendations for new equipment will only be made if they are needed to reach DSE regulations. Most modern office furniture/equipment can be adjusted enough to fit most people to the correct standards.
Do You Do Home Work Environment Assessments?
Yes we do. People working from home often have worse working environments than those in the office! Its easy to sit on the sofa and work from a laptop, but this can cause all sorts of injuries which can lead to your staff being signed off work.
