DSE workstation assessments are used to minimise the effect of sitting at a workstation for too long during the working day. Work-related musculoskeletal disorder (WMSD) prevention can help to increase profits by addressing the risk factors that contribute to pain in the office. Staff can spend up to 40 hours a week sat in the same position which can impair circulation and tighten postural muscles, causing stiffness and pain including back pain, neck pain, headaches, sciatica and many more conditions. Optimal posture is crucial to ensuring your employees are healthy, happy and therefore productive.
By providing DSE assessments to your staff, you can help to prevent the above conditions, decreasing office absenteeism and with pain no longer providing a distraction, increase productivity levels.
Prevention also reinforces perceived self-value within a team, boosting office morale and increasing employee loyalty. In turn this can reduce staff turnover and therefore retraining costs.
We are able to generate DSE assessment reports on each staff member for health insurance or HR purposes. In order to empower staff to be able to charge of their postural health we provide a presentation preceding each day of workstation assessments. For each group of 10 or more workstation assessments we offer this presentation for free! This presentation is mandatory for all staff undergoing a workstation assessment.
