Ergonomic Services

Workplace ergonomics is the science that addresses the relationship between the employee and the working environment, because it considers individual capabilities and tasks as well as the work environment, ergonomics can be applied to an organisation.

 

Physiotherapy Matters can offer ergonomic services that comprise a flexible programme of comprehensive workplace assessments, developed and managed by our specialist occupational health physiotherapists to meet the unique needs of your organisation. As a result of the ergonomic assessment, managers can be informed of the identified risk factors that may contribute to musculoskeletal disorders in the workforce. We would also offer suggestions for amendments and work alongside you in workplace re-design.

 

Appropriate workplace ergonomics can reduce the risk of work-aggravated conditions, improve employee productivity and performance, improve health and safety at work and address legal compliance issues.
