What our Managed Service involves
We can establish a complete DSE system from scratch for you, or fill in wherever you need DSE guidance or a few extra hands on deck. You control the level of management you’d like us to take on for you.
Our ultimate goal with any level of Managed Service is to make sure you have a smooth-running system for giving employees the support they need before issues spiral into costly, productivity-draining problems.
Posturite Managed Services can be filtered into two streams:
- Direct contact tasks
- Triage calls
- Administration tasks
- Managing systems
- Allocating resources
- Keeping an audit trail
DSE and Workstation Assessments
DSE assessment implementation
Setting up or managing DSE self-assessment software
If you don’t already, we highly recommend you use self-assessment software as step one in your organisation’s DSE process. This way all DSE users can run through a series of checks on themselves to determine any risks before they become a problem.
We recommend this because:
- It’s cost-effective
- It doesn’t take much time
- Data is managed and stored securely online
- Users are guided through checks without need for an assessor
- Issues are flagged up automatically
- You can make data-driven decisions about where to invest
- You can easily generate reports and audits
Do you have a self-assessment software in mind? If so we can manage it for you. Whether rolling out a new process, or managing an existing process, our team can support you by keeping user data up to date with a variety of options available to manage starters, leavers, reminders and schedules. We recommend Q-Pulse WorkRite e-learning by Ideagen — originally developed by our own team and now owned by a globally-renowned tech firm.
If you don’t have or want to implement an e-learning system, we can help create a manual process and recommend how to manage this effectively, with support where needed from our health and safety consultancy team.
Prioritising action based on self-assessment results
Smart organisation from the offset will save you huge amounts of money and time. Our team make sure major risks are qualified and resources are allocated where they’re needed. Simple, streamlined and effective.
A standard Managed Service workflow focuses on issues generated by the self-assessment process. Priority is given to staff who report musculoskeletal discomfort or pain, as well as other higher risk issues such as inadequate or broken furniture, pregnancy and disability. Outside of this, it is usually recommended that automated advice or other learning resources are used to resolve lower risk issues, with the option to revert to the Managed Service team if there is a need.
Personalised tips, infographics and other resources
Our case managers are all experienced DSE assessors and are always on hand to offer basic DSE or workstation guidance as part of a triage or agreed process. This could include detail on how best to set up a workstation or chair, the importance of breaks and other postural or ergonomic guidance. Further learning resources could be provided at this point, or even some direct recommendations for effective ergonomic adjustments.
Assessment and consultation services
Higher level help
Where there is a need to escalate issues to a formal assessment, our team can direct staff to an internal process (e.g. Occupational Health), or engage our own range of assessment services. This can range from a remote telephone consultation, through to on-site Level 1 assessments or higher level ergonomic assessments.
For any disability assessments, our enablement team can be referred.
Expert recommendations and provision
There may be requirements for alternative equipment recommendations. Our team will be able to provide recommendations from our extensive portfolio of options, or work from agreed list of recommended items. This can be a list agreed with Posturite or other suppliers that may be contracted to provide furniture and other equipment solutions.
Once equipment has been delivered, a follow up discussion to ensure that equipment is in situ and some guidance will be provided to ensure appropriate use.
Securely auditable data at your finger tips
Whether using WorkRite or other agreed processes, our team will keep a full audit trail of contact points, discussions, recommendations and escalations.
Reporting and management information
Easily generated reports
Our team can create bespoke reports to offer an overview for a range of typical management data or service level agreement requirements.
Above all, our Managed Service is extremely flexible based on the specific requirements or existing processes in place. Our implementation team will thoroughly discuss how the Managed Service needs to work and build a workflow to meet those requirements.
