Office Work Station Assessor Training

How often do you see external providers do workstation assessments and a new set-up, and within a couple of days the person has put everything back to how it was before? What a waste of money!

Our office workplace assessment training programme gives companies the skills to provide ergonomic workstation set-up internally. This enables you to get employees' 'buy-in' through identifying the ‘what’s in it for me’ factor, so the individual owns the new workstation set up, movement techniques, and postures taught continue to be used. You are able to improve comfort levels for employees in sedentary office environments, according to what is best for each individual.

Assessors are coached to be a ‘coach’ in a two day training programme that takes a few key elements from the Move@work health and safety training. They are quick and simple to apply in a one-on-one coaching situation and relevant to sedentary workstation environments.

A full resource book and workstation checklists for the assessors are supplied and hand-outs are also available.

Key Features:

  • Employees identify benefits for themselves following an assessment, as the changes identify a “what’s in it for me” factor.  This leads to ownership of the solution, a shift towards improved comfort levels at their workstation, injury prevention and safe movements when performing tasks.
  • The programme teaches movement techniques, multiple postures and ‘workstation set-up’ options tailored to each individual, that are proven to result in less muscle fatigue, aches and soreness leading to less strain and sprain injuries.
  • Simple ergonomics relating to workstation set-up, NOT according to ‘the book’, but tailored to the individual.
  • The assessor will become a facilitator to help people to work out their own optimal comfort levels, identify strain and discomfort and equip individuals with the knowledge, tools and workplace set-up to be self-managing.
  • The ‘transfer effect’ – employees are anxious to apply the techniques on the job – they understand the benefit from making the changes.
  • Employees begin to realise when they are not as ‘comfortable as they could be’ resulting in very early intervention to prevent discomfort, pain and injury (DPI).
