Our Exercise Physiologists are available for onsite ergonomic assessments. All assessments include a report of findings in addition to postural preventative exercises customised to you and your staff’s conditions.
The Risks of Poor Work Ergonomics
Proper ergonomics are essential for the well-being of employees in all workplaces. Poor workplace design and ergonomics can include sustained awkward postures, forceful movements and highly repetitive tasks, which can lead to short or long-term workplace injuries and issues.
The additional strain put on the body by these poor ergonomics can result in headaches, eye strain, back and neck pain, stiffness and musculoskeletal injuries.
