Ergonomics can help employers to identify poor / inefficient practices and implement strategies to enhance employees’ health, safety and wellbeing, and at the same time, improve productivity and working efficiency.
Sano Physiotherapy helps employers to implement cost-effective solutions to support employees with health conditions at work.
Workplace Ergonomic Assessments
All our workplace ergonomics assessments are carried out by experienced physiotherapists with post-graduate training in ergonomics and occupational health to:
fully assess employees’ health needs
provide specific, practical advice
set up their workplace / workstation
report on findings and make recommendations
Vehicle Ergonomic Assessments
Prolonged periods of sitting can cause musculoskeletal disorders, such as low back pain, particularly when sitting in a vehicle due to added effects of movement and vibration on the body. Being comfortable and well positioned in a vehicle reduces driver fatigue and the development of musculoskeletal disorders.
Assessment by our Chartered Physiotherapists will make sure your employees are working safely and comfortably in their vehicle, and know how best to manage any health conditions. We can recommend equipment to improve their posture and comfort or advise on the type of vehicle to best suit their needs.
