What is Ergonomics?
In it’s simplest form, Ergonomics is working in a way that puts the minimal amount of stress on your body, for the period of time that you are sat in a position.
To this extent, it is about designing a working environment around an individual, rather than expecting them to adapt to what is already there. As humans, we are all different, heights, weights, shapes and sizes, no two people are the same, and as such no workstation should be the same either.
In relation to the layout and design of an employees desk set-up, there are many factors that should be considered in order to maximise the ergonomic benefit available to them.
Wyvern are able to offer a Full UK D.S.E. Ergonomic Assessment Service
Staff spend long periods of time sat at their desk or workstation, and this prolonged position can trigger all manner of afflictions, from bad backs to repetitive motion pains, and can lead to pain, discomfort, and ultimately time spent off work.
The Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992 were set up to provide guidance and legislation to keep D.S.E. users safe.
Wyvern Business Systems have specialist D.S.E. Trained Assessors who can offer a practical and impartial workstation assessment, with guidance and advice to adjust your current set-ups, and if required additional equipment recommendations to enhance the current set-up.
We can conduct assessments for individuals all the way up to entire workforces, whatever is needed to suit your requirements. For more information on D.S.E. Assessments, please fill in this form and we’ll get back in touch with you.
