WorkRite Agile

The online DSE risk assessment for agile workers

I'm interested

You’ve set your team free into the big wide world of agile working. They’re now unshackled from their permanent workstations, with the ability to make their own decisions about how, when and where they do their work.

The agile life is dynamic, reactive, fast-moving and free. Employees enjoy a better work-life balance and feel a stronger sense of commitment and loyalty. Organisations start to look and feel more appealing, attracting sparkling new talent and retaining valuable employees.

It sounds like workplace utopia, doesn’t it?

Not always. With greater freedom comes greater risk - especially when it comes to important health and safety matters like display screen equipment set-up. When employees are out of sight in a variety of different locations and environments, how do you effectively manage those risks?

The Agile Life

REMEMBER: You still have a legal responsibility to protect your staff from the risks of using display screen equipment (DSE), even when they’re working outside of the office.

Meet WorkRite Agile

The online course that teaches you, an agile worker, how to work safely, comfortably and productively in the environments you are most likely to use.

WorkRite Agile takes you on a personalised, interactive journey following the challenges faced by five memorable characters as they go about their daily agile working lives.

An interactive journey

How does WorkRite Agile work?

WorkRite Agile pioneers a new generation of e-learning, created by our team of developers, ergonomic experts and content creators. Let’s take a look at what’s new and different:


Dynamic user journey

Dynamic user journey

Unlike traditional e-learning courses, our new agile working course does not follow a linear design. The journey to the end can take many directions, with the user choosing which environments to explore based on their own unique working habits. This dynamic user journey ensures staff need only work through the content most relevant to them.

Choice of environments

After completing the core ergonomic principles module, users are invited to choose their primary working environment. The course will then take them through training content and an assessment appropriate to the way they work.

Input device selection

The user is asked to select the devices they use most frequently, which tailors the assessment questions and helps you with reporting and auditing on the equipment being used.

Self-assess as you go

Self-assess as you go

As you work your way through your chosen environments you’ll be asked to answer questions about your set-up. This will determine the content you need to complete later on. Those required to take the DSE workstation module will pass a test upon completion to help them remember the things they’ve learnt.

Work through bright, interactive illustrations

Our illustrators have shaken up the style of our e-learning illustrations to make them brighter with a stylised, contemporary pop. Users can enjoy detailed backdrops with interactive elements to make learning more engaging and enjoyable.

Get to know five unique characters

We wanted to make learning fun and relatable with the inclusion of a cast of characters who all work in different industries and roles. This grounds vital information in real-life situations, making it both easier to digest, and easier to remember.

Animations and audio narration

Animations and audio narration

Agile working is all about freedom of movement - so why keep our e-learning static? Our new course includes simple animations to illustrate ideas and keep users engaged. The entire course is narrated too, so users can both listen to and read on-screen text. This way, more than one learning preference is catered for.

Immerse yourself in engaging real-life situations

The course takes users on a journey through a variety of environments and scenarios, from cafes and hotel lobbies to living rooms and offices. This provides scope for a greater variety of potential risks.

Users can choose to end the course once they complete their chosen environments. Or - if they’re curious, they can learn about other environments by unlocking these modules. As employees’ roles develop and evolve, chances are their environments could change too. This feature allows you to unlock content without the need to buy any additional courses.

All of our course content is planned and verified by qualified health professionals and ergonomists. We’ve been leaders in the ergonomics market for almost three decades, and we’ve spent over ten years mastering our e-learning division.
