Office ergonomics

Our experienced office ergonomics and human factors consultants use a structured, evidence-based approach to improve your office working environment, equipment and tasks.

Our expertise is in applying our understanding of people and how they work, their capabilities and their limitations, to make your workplace more comfortable, productive and efficient. As a result, you’ll be able to boost your operations, look after your people, and serve your customers better.

Improving your workstations

It’s obvious that your office workstations must be safe, comfortable and productive. In fact, risk assessments for display screen equipment (DSE) users are a legal requirement throughout Europe.

Our qualified consultants will provide clear, practical advice, and address the issue in the best way for your organisation.

EXAMPLES OF HOW WE CAN HELP INCLUDE:

  • Conduct DSE assessments of your workstations
  • Train your in-house assessors to conduct DSE assessment of your workstations
  • Deliver face to face training for users to conduct self-assessments of their own workstations
  • Train users to adjust and assess their own workstations using our online software package Ergopoint, supported by trained ergonomists for high risk or complex cases.

We can also help you to evaluate office technologies and equipment prior to purchase, to help you avoid costly mistakes.

Our approach to DSE workstation assessments

Our expert assessments are inclusive, practical and cost effective – simple adjustments are often all that is needed to overcome problems. A combination of DSE assessments and training is often required, so we’ll customise our services to fit your requirements.

We base our advice on the UK’s Health and Safety Executive Display Screen Equipment Regulations, industry best practice and international ergonomics standards – which we helped develop. And our specialist knowledge and experience includes the needs of people with motor, hearing, visual or neuro-diverse disabilities.

You’ll find our reports are presented in an easy-to-use format, with the level of detail pre-agreed at the outset, and action points clearly prioritised. And when it comes to implementation, we can continue to work with you to ensure you get full value from your assessment programme.
