Ergonomics Services

Occupational health & wellbeing

Reduce workplace musculoskeletal disorders & injuries including back pain and neck pain, with tailored ergonomic solutions & support for your business.

Workplaces such as office environments might not appear dangerous, but the frequent use of incorrectly designed Display Screen Equipment (DSE), long periods spent sitting, poor posture and repetitive motions like typing can cause serious long-term problems for your employees.

By putting the correct ergonomic practices in place, you can both increase productivity and significantly reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injury and ill health.

Over 470,000 workers struggled with musculoskeletal disorders directly caused by their work or workplace in 2020-21. This accounted for 28% of all work-related ill health cases. (HSE, UK)

Ergonomics & DSE support in the workplace

Ergonomic solutions in the workplace are crucial to employee wellbeing, with poor practices widely known as causing a significant risk to health and productivity. Luckily, there is a lot that employers can do to help lower the risks facing office and home workers. It is important to identify these hazards through ergonomic and DSE risk assessments and implement a positive ergonomic strategy to minimise these risks.

What is ergonomics and what does it involve?

Ergonomics is the practice of assessing, designing and adapting workspaces, furniture, equipment, systems and support so they fit the people using them. The main aim is to lessen the risk of pain, strain, headache or injury that workers may experience while doing their job and improve overall wellness.

In a recent study, an ergonomic evaluation leading to a change in office furniture resulted in a 54% reduction in reports of back and neck pain and a significant reduction in reports of low mood and stress levels.

Office ErgonomicsDisplay Screen Equipment assessments (DSE assessments) are used to evaluate the effectiveness of an individual’s workstation set up. A poorly designed workstation can lead to the development of musculoskeletal disorders such as back pain, neck pain and upper limb pain.

We can organise to evaluate and report on employee workstations either onsite or remotely, providing appointments that can be arranged at your convenience.

Results are for your business use only and are not reported to any other organisation.


Workplace Ergonomics

A workplace assessment analyses the nature of the job role and task, the machinery and equipment used. The aim is to ensure the job and tools fit the person, not the other way around.

We can arrange to visit your premises to carry out an ergonomic evaluation and full report of working practices and production processes to ensure your staff are exposed to the lowest risk of developing pain and injury at work.

Results are for your business use only and are not reported to any other organisation.


Ergonomics awareness training is a great way to educate your employees on best practices concerning their working postures and reducing the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders both inside and outside of work.

We can provide bespoke and tailored ergonomic training sessions delivered remotely or onsite. We support your employees in understanding the benefits of ergonomics on their overall health & wellbeing. Ergonomic training can address common workplace complaints including back pain, stiff necks, painful sprains, aching shoulders, sore upper backs, joint pain, muscle strains and recurring headaches.
