ARE YOU IN PAIN AND LOOKING FOR A SOLUTION?
Workplace set up and ergonomic training is recognised as one of the most important factors in workplace health and safety today. Many underlying causes of musculoskeletal pain and injuries that we commonly see in the clinic can be avoided by simple changes in workplace set up or with the advice of ergonomic training (sitting/standing posture and lifting/ manual handling technique being the big ones!).
If you are sitting or standing for long periods of time at work, then it is essential that the environment be adjusted to fit you. Unfortunately anyone working in a poorly designed ergonomic work place is destined for pain and injury – it is merely a matter of time before the body has had enough.
If you have any queries about what ergonomic package might best suit your workplace, please contact us today!
