Ergonomic Consultancy

      Consultancy services may include:

  • Walk-around type sessions (“Express Assessments”) where we visit a number of employees at their desks to provide advice (no individual reports). This can be a standalone service or can be added to a Workstation Ergonomics Training session. A summary report or email can also be provided on request.
  • Advice regarding office refit during the design phase. This may include facilitating a participative ergonomics program for the selection of furniture and equipment in consultation with your team.
  • Customisation of checklists/templates, e.g. WFH Checklist.
