What Are Ergonomics?

Correct ergonomics include designing your workplace environment for optimal biomechanical use therefore minimising risk of poor posture and associated injuries/conditions. The assessment can be completed in both white and blue collar working environments/settings.

What Is Assessed?

The physiotherapist will thoroughly assess the work environment, as well as educating the worker/s on correct ergonomic principles to use in their day to day work. The work environment includes the immediate environment and greater workplace environment.
