Ergonomic Workplace Assessment

Increase productivity, efficiency and the health & well-being of your employees by allowing OFI to identify and reduce risk within your organisation.

Our Ergonomic Awareness and Ergonomic Champion courses are designed to improve knowledge of ergonomic risks and associated musculoskeletal issues, and encourage a preventative approach and problem-solving culture within your organisation.

There are a multitude of factors and inter-related processes that can contribute to the increased likelihood of a workplace injury occurring. The obvious risk factors include the manual handling of heavy workloads, repetitive tasks and the use of poor posture, but there are likely to be dozens of more subtle factors, all of which all play a subtle, but significant contribution to the ‘risk’ of your work tasks.

Our Ergonomic Workplace Assessment can enable your business to reduce injury, risk, accidents and decrease absence from work. We take a holistic approach, drawing upon the dozens of years experience that our professional trainers posses, in order to produce a detailed, bespoke ergonomic assessment of your workplace.

Reasons to undertake an Ergonomic Workplace Assessment:

  • reduction in injury risk, accidents and lost working days.
  • improvements to the musculoskeletal health of your employees.
  • prevent potentially expensive litigation.
  • comply with Health & Safetly law, in respect of your duty of care towards your employees.
  • provides and overview of current practices, and allows you to see where future investment or training could be best applied.

The training I received has given me both the skills and confidence to carry out training on the use of hoists and slide sheets within our care homes. I found the trainer to be knowledgeable, approachable and thorough – I would recommend the services of Osteopaths For Industry.
