Desk and vehicle assessment services

If you’ve ever tried working in pain or discomfort, you’ll understand how challenging it is to stay focused. Without focus, productivity takes a rapid nosedive. Multiply that productivity drop across a whole business, and the impact is often huge. In fact it’s estimated by HSE that 8.8 million working days were lost to work-related musculoskeletal injuries in 2015-16.

While musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) cost organisations significant amounts of money in absenteeism and dropped productivity, it is possible to prevent and reduce this cost significantly by making simple changes to the working environment.

Create agile workspaces that encourage movement. Offer employees flexibility in where and how they work. Make sure offices are well thought out and set up with ergonomic products.

We know that many working environments encourage sedentary behaviour. Many office tasks involve long periods spent in one position making small, often repetitive movements with the arms and fingers. Over time, poor posture and overreaching for equipment puts stress on the musculoskeletal system and causes/ exacerbates a variety of painful disorders.

To reduce the negative impact of sedentary working habits, we offer desk and vehicle assessments.

Sometimes all it takes is a few simple tweaks to your set-up to completely transform your level of comfort and reduce the risk of developing MSDs. Other times a more specialist solution is needed. Our UK-wide force of experienced assessors can deliver a range of workstation assessments depending on your goal - whether it’s simply to meet all-important display screen equipment (DSE) regulations, to future-proof your office, or to take a closer, more detailed look at more complex cases. We offer a variety of workstation assessments. DSE assessments are carried out by trained DSE assessors, while more in-depth assessments are delivered by qualified health professionals.
