Reduce workplace injury & ensure your employees are safe through a home office ergonomic assessment

Home Office Ergonomic Workstation Assessments

“All employers have a duty of care under current legislation to provide a safe workplace for their workers.”

If a worker is working from home as part of an agreed work plan, this includes their home office and home environment. This level of assessment ensures your workers home and home office work area has been assessed for both ergonomic risk factors and general occupational health and safety risk factors.

Building on from our ergonomic assessments we are able to send an Occupational Health Consultant (osteopath, physiotherapist, occupational therapist, exercise physiologist) to your workers home office to complete a home office ergonomic workstation assessment and occupational health and safety risk assessment with report.

Our health professional consultants will visit the workers home to carry out one-on-one home office ergonomic workstation assessment consultation + safety risk assessment to identify all ergonomic hazards, plus assess work related manual handling issues, repetition, trip hazards, fire safety, ventilation, emergency contacts, childcare arrangements and first aid supplies. This will provide you with a report which can be kept with your Health and Safety Rep’s records for management.
