Almost 70% of Australia’s workforce is now classified as sedentary, a figure which has increased dramatically over the past two to three decades. Many of us are working significantly longer hours, so it is not surprising that an inappropriately set up workstation may have massive impacts on your health.
An ergonomic assessment may be carried out preventatively before pain or injury occurs, or reactively, once a problem arises.
We recommend all offices conduct these assessments for all staff periodically, as well as when circumstances change, such as when a new staff member joins your team or the type of work being performed varies. Assessments can be performed in your usual office environment, or in home office/work-from-home setups.
