3DMS are a leading provider in services relating to the human considerations of the workplace. As part of our service offering, 3DMS provide ergonomic workstation assessments to clients looking to ensure the long-term health of their employees.
Unsound ergonomic practices can have a profound impact on the body, contributing to the development of musculoskeletal disorders. Issues such as pain in the neck, shoulders, back and arms can arise over time and require extensive treatment to address effectively.
What is an Ergonomic Workstation Assessment?
Ergonomics is the study of how the human body interacts with objects and environments. It combines the insights of fields as diverse as design, psychology, biomechanics and more. Our workplaces are an environment that features their own ergonomically significant features, and those features can reshape our musculo-skeletal health over time.
Consider the lengths of time that we spend interacting with the specific ergonomic features of our workplaces. For many working professionals, our working lives involve repetition, occasional exertion, and prolonged periods in particular postures. The significance that these things bear on our long-term health makes it important that we take an informed and proactive approach to the ergonomics of our workspaces and specifically our workstations.
3DMS provides consultations and assessments of the ergonomic conditions of your workplace. Our ergonomic workstation assessments are an effective means of gathering information on how your employees interact with their work environment. Allowing your organisation the insights necessary to understand and mitigate the risk of long-term musculo-skeletal problems.
Ergonomic Workstation Group Training
Ergonomic workstation assessments produce a body of information that can be used to mitigate the risk of exertion, repetitive strain and poor posture. The adjustments required are often easy, quick and inexpensive. As a part of our offering, 3DMS provides ergonomic workstation group training that is designed to familiarise your employees with the core principles of good ergonomics.
We make the effort to present the basics of good ergonomics in an easy-to-digest way. Ensuring that your employees both understand their importance and how to go about effectively implementing basic ergonomic principles. Group training is an opportunity to encourage your employees to collectively ‘buy in’ to good ergonomic practice.
