Professional Ergonomic Assessment Training Can Prevent Harm & Loss Of Money
The ideal candidate to avail of an ergonomic assessment in Brisbane is a brand new office, or start-up, or a self-employed person that is considering what their home office will look and feel like. Taking proactive measures that deliver preventative solutions to injury in the workplace from the start is the dream. Once they are in place and workers have been trained as to how best to carry out their tasks, then the policy becomes self-sustaining and fosters a culture of positive workplace behaviour.
However, for those that are approaching this as a result of witnessing far too many days of absenteeism due to poor workstations or bad habits, don’t worry, you can still make a positive change with our help. At Corporate Work Health Australia, we bring an objective point of view to your site and will complete a risk assessment that will indicate any hazards or poor practices that need to be changed.
The office ergonomics training course is a tailored program that we will design for your organization will cater directly to the issues that we identified and you will find that our modes of delivery are more extensive and designed to increase employee understanding and, as a consequence, lead to the integration of good practices.
Once your workforce is aware of the risk that they face, no matter how small or seemingly inconsequential, they retain this information and act as mentors and guides in best practice for new hires. As such, by training your current staff such as with manual handling courses in Brisbane, you are taking measures to ensure the safety and wellbeing of new hires.
