Our Remote Ergonomic Assessments and DSE screening comply with Health and Safety Authority Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Applications) Regulations Act 2007.
We provide a fast, no fuss, personalized service. Depending on the client requirements usually 25-30 employees may be assessed per day. Due to the recent pandemic we offer Remote Ergonomic Assessments for individuals.
The service we provide consists of an Individual Employee assessment, an Office and Environmental Assessment and the provision of digital reports on both.
Benefits of Ergonomic Assessments:
- Increased productivity
- Decreased MSDs (Musculoskeletal Disorders) and Repetitive Strain Injury
- Decreased workers compensation and healthcare costs
- Better quality work from our employees
- Safer workplace
The Individual Assessment
Each employee and all of their equipment including work desk and chair are assessed in relation to all aspects of health and safety including adjustability, comfort, support. We also, as part of the assessment carry out any postural corrections needed on the individual at the workstation.
Due to the recent pandemic individuals may be assessed remotely via Zoom, WhatsApp, Facetime etc. We will supply any employee who requires it with an individual rehab programme whether it be for an existing injury or as a preventative measure to avoid most common problems. Each assessment is digitally signed by the employee and the physiotherapist.
The Office Assessment
The surrounding office environment is assessed in relation to noise, ventilation, temperature. This ensures all employees are comfortable in their surroundings and all health and safety at work legislation is adhered to.
Remote Office Assessment
A screening form is sent to employee. Form is sent back to the assessor prior to assessment. In some cases photos may be sent to assessor of their workstation where they will be analysed. Virtual meeting is set up on Zoom, WhatsApp, Facetime etc. Employee is given advice and employer sent a digital report.
Each employee assessment generates an Ergonomic Report with current status and individualised recommendations for that employee. This report is digital and can be emailed to both employer and employee.
We will also provide an overall organisational report which gives the results and recommendations of the office environment as well as any generalised recommendations for the office as a whole.
