At Corporate Work Health Australia, we endeavour to customise the knowledge that our health professionals bring to each client we work with through ergonomic assessor training, regardless of whether they hope to address specific issues or work practices, or if they are motivated to undertake a complete overhaul of their entire range of processes.

Our insights into the common and not so common causes of MSK complaints will benefit your business as we design new ergonomic and manual handling services around your existing processes. The end goal of train the instructor ergonomics course is a reduction of injuries in the workplace and less of your profits eaten away on absenteeism and claims that could have been avoided.

In addition to our training course, we also have our Ergonomic Assessment services available in Perth, Melbourne, Brisbane & all other major Australian cities.

Why an Ergonomic Assessment Training Course Is Important For Your Employees

One of the most common misconceptions with regards to an ergonomic assessment training course is that it is for those that have incurred an injury already and must have their former workstation adjusted to prevent a repeat occurrence. If your company has somehow managed to never incur even a single injury, you too stand to benefit from ergonomic train the assessor training.

It goes without saying that those who have suffered an injury should be catered to on their return so that their recovery can happen as quickly as possible. However, taking steps to safeguard your systems, processes and procedures prior to ever even starting to open for business is an incredibly valuable move to make. Fostering a culture that is focused on good practices and instilling employees with a mindful attitude toward ergonomics will create a much healthier environment.

Another misconception is that ergonomics are only for those in offices. Major companies who appear to only have office space will, in fact, have many operatives that spend their days travelling in cars, for example. Properly equipping them with the right ergonomic tools will ensure that their work is not having a detrimental impact on their wellbeing.

“No two people are alike” is another phrase that the team here at Corporate Work Health Australia hear quite often. That’s true, but it does not mean that we cannot find ergonomic solutions for all with our train the trainer ergonomics course. Ergonomic assessment training seeks to educate workers about the hazards in their daily lives so that they can take preventative measures. It empowers you to protect your body from harm. As such, the time and monetary investment are more than worth it in the long run. Other than ergonomics, we also run manual handling training courses to help employees understand the right procedures surrounding manual handling tasks.

Have you considered assessor training for key staff?

Educate yourself or some of your team on workplace and work from home risk management strategies, home office ergonomics best practice and how to optimise a home workstation set up.

Ergonomic train the assessor workshops completed onsite at your workplace. Educate key staff on setting up workers and completing basic ergonomic desk assessments through ergonomic train the instructor training (ideal for companies looking to train key staff in being able to assess employee workstations reducing the need to engage external consultants)

Reviews

We connected with Wade from CWH again to assist in this transition.

They assisted our team in transitioning to working from home in three ways: a group webinar education session, followed by workers completing a self-assessment form and then undertaking 1:1 consultations to deliver a tailored approach.

As a business we have made the transition smoother to ensure our workers are comfortable, and set up to perform their tasks safely at home.

The inner-city business for whom I work as Office Administrator recently engaged CWHA to deliver “Sit Safe” training seminars and conduct ergonomic assessments for all our staff. It was a very worthwhile undertaking. The information imparted in the seminars was interesting and applicable. The individual desk checks were thorough and valuable, as was the subsequent comprehensive report.

We recently had Wade out at our workplace to deliver Ergonomic Assessment training. Wade has a wealth of knowledge that he willingly shares with participants. His easy going presentation style ensures the course is delivered in an interesting and practical format that is beneficial to everyone.  I have no hesitation in recommending Wade for your future training needs.
