Home Office Workstation Assessment
During the pandemic, we saw the shift from working at work to the creation of the 'office at home'. Many employees quickly rushed too Officeworks in the hopes of an office chair, a desk and a keyboard. However, over the past several months we have seen 'working from home' injuries exponentially rise. The purpose of this assessment, is to ergonomically assess the 'home office' for any ergonomic risk factors with various recommendations on equipment, lighting, air circulation and safety devices to protect you whilst you work from home.
What is included:
1- The ergonomic home office assessment commences with a history of any reported symptoms or discomforts whilst working at the home office from the employee.
2- An individual analysis of the desk, chair, monitors, phone, mouse and keyboard is conducted to ensure a reduced ergonomic risk factor.
3- The home office is then adjusted to suit the employee with any adjustments for specific job requirements and any pre-existing conditions.
4- Stretches are discussed to minimise injuries and encourage self management
5- A report is finalised with the ergonomic findings and and risk factors identified, as well as any specific ergonomic equipment's. This report can be made out to Human Resources (HR) or to the employee.
