The physical workplace has become the “villain” in so many employees’ stories about their health, productivity and ability to perform at work. How often do one hear of neck pain, headaches, back pain and discomfort in the office environment? We can assist you with conquering this “villain” and making the workplace a better place for all.

Businesses are constantly seeking ways to improve the bottom line. Unfortunately, investing in and improving employee wellness and, in doing so improving employee productivity, is often ignored as a way of achieving this.

Office ergonomics is an essential and easy way to improve employee health, wellness and productivity. Simply defined, ergonomics is the study of how one’s body interacts with the environment when you perform a task or activity. Office ergonomics focuses on workstation arrangement to fit the individual’s needs. It includes the choice and positioning of equipment such as the desk, computer screen or laptop, chair, keyboard and mouse. Addressing the ergonomic set-up, can improve the person’s posture and reduce conditions associated with long hours spent in a sustained position. This can in turn result in improved comfort, a boost in staff morale and ultimately a happier and more productive employee.

Product Demo’s and Orders

Improving ergonomics do much more than simply promote comfort and reduce injury risks. Good ergonomic practices increase productivity and boost employee morale, reducing costs associated with time off work due to MSD’s (musculoskeletal disorders). This can, in turn have a positive impact on the bottom line. It is a critical and often ignored way for any organisation to ensure that they take care of their human capital – the most valuable asset in any business.

It is essential to match your product requirements to the specific needs of your organisation – from a functionality, aesthetic and budget perspective. For this reason, we offer demo units of most of our products to allow you to sample the products in the environment and for the purpose it will be required for. We aim to supply you with products that match all of your requirements to ensure alignment with the purpose and continued use. 

Ergonomic Workstation Assessments

Ergonomicsdirect can assist with Workstation assessments and product recommendations. We are not Ergonomists, but all our assessors are Certified Office Ergonomics Evaluators. We also have a Physiotherapist and Orthotist Prosthetist in the team which brings extensive clinical expertise. We have numerous years of experience within the field of Office Ergonomic Products and like to refer to ourselves as product specialists. We are experienced in and understand office ergonomics. We will analyse your employee workstations and recommend solutions based on your organisation’s specific requirements.

Our main goals with the workplace assessments are:

  • To match the user with the best equipment for their specific requirements and fit for purpose
  • To ensure correct positioning of the user and equipment, based on Ergonomic setup guidelines
  • To educate and empower the users to ensure continued compliance and correct use of the equipment.

The assessment fee will be waivered, should you make a purchase of more than a certain amount from Ergonomicsdirect within 60 days following the assessments. This amount can be discussed and agreed to on an ad-hoc basis. Reports can also be provided on request. 

Talks and information sessions

Whether or not someone’s workstation is causing a physical problem, a workstation that is properly set up can increase productivity and quality of work life

We have seen the value of informing and educating staff about Ergonomics, what it is, how they can easily implement it at their workstations and why this should be implemented into their working environment. Even a small change or improved awareness can make a substation difference.

Let us assist with talks at your Wellness days, information sessions to departments or help internal project “champions” with their campaigns. Are you unsure about where to start and how to take such a project on? Let us assist you with planning and creating ideas for campaigns to increase awareness within your business.
