Vehicle Ergonomic Assessments and Training For Your Workers

Why is your vehicle ergonomic setup important?

Absenteeism and litigation aren’t just caused by manual tasks. Ergonomics is recognised as one of the most important factors in the workplace health and safety environment today. Poor posture is the underlying cause of many musculoskeletal disorders that we treat on a daily basis. If you are sitting in your car or manual handling to/from it, it is essential that it be adjusted to fit you. A worker required to work in a poorly designed space is destined to injury. All assessments are performed by fully qualified and practicing Physiotherapists, Osteopaths or Exercise Physiologists with extensive knowledge of the current legislation. Corporate Work Health Australia offer a number of ergonomic solutions for the workplace. We cater for both small and large companies and offer clients a variety of ways to provide vehicle ergonomic assessment & advice. If you have any queries about what vehicle ergonomic package might best suit your workplace, please call us to speak to a consultant.
