Office Ergonomics Advice, Talks And Workshops



Having healthy and pain free employees can translate to having a more productive and profitable business. 

Work-related musculoskeletal disorders - especially for the hand, arm, shoulder, neck, thoracic and lower back pain - are one of the most frequently reported causes of lost or restricted work time. A recent survey showed that one-third (33%) of all the injuries and illness from work, were due to WMSDs 1. 

Recent statistics and data, used by government sectors in the USA(1), Australia(2), Great Britain(3), and Singapore(4) have indicated that the role of corporate ergonomics can help optimize a worker’s environment/workstation for greater comfort. 

In turn, this helps to minimize musculoskeletal disorders arising from work (WMSD’s).

BENEFITS OF CORPORATE ERGONOMICS

  • Increasing work comfort, morale and productivity
  • Improving employee quality of life
  • Reducing employee sick leave
  • Retaining employees
  • Improving business profitability
