Ergonomic Assessment and Injury Prevention

Ergonomic Assessment and Injury Prevention

Injury prevention can be as simple as arranging the workplace to allow work to be undertaken comfortably and safely. WOHC’s Occupational Health Nurses are trained in ergonomics and can advise you and your employees on how to perform tasks safely. This involves assessing the workstation (whether computer desk or production line) and other aspects of the work environment. This can include:

  • Adjusting noise levels and lighting – suitable for the individual concerned,
  • Educating staff on safe work practices and how to manage tasks to reduce the risk of injury.
