Office Workstation Risk Assessment Training For Allied Health Professionals

For those allied health professionals that work in private clinical practice (osteopaths, physiotherapists, chiropractors, myotherapists and exercise physiologists), understanding the most common hazards and risks associated with desk based computer work is essential as often these hazards and risks may result in an individuals increased risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders.  Common musculoskeletal disorders seen in workers who spend long periods of time working at a desk include neck pain, upper limb disorders (tendinopathies of the elbow and wrist) and lower back pain.  If you are looking to further your knowledge in this area, then take the time to check out the 1 day ergonomic risk assessment training course that osteopath Heath Williams and physiotherapist Wade Brennan of Corporate Work Health Australia run.  Find out more about this course at https://corporateworkhealth.com.au/ohs-services/professional-development-ergonomics-manual-handling-gold-coast-melbourne-sydney/. Corporate Work Health Australia run this courses in Melbourne, Sydney and the Gold Coast/Brisbane area.
