Ergonomic Workstation Assessments

Workplace Assessments are a great tool to reduce the amount of injuries experienced by employees who spend a large amount of their day in front of a visual display unit (VDU).

Early detection of issues can prevent serious harm injuries, ACC claims and prolonged periods of time off work due to pain and discomfort.

Our nurses and occupational therapists are highly trained and specialised in recognising and helping people who are coping with discomfort, pain and injury (DPI) and ongoing musculoskeletal issues related to too many hours spent at a computer or VDU.

Our Ergonomic Workstation Assessments don’t just look at the traditional aspects of a Desk Assessment. We include equipment placement, lighting, posture and micropauses.  We provide advice on improving work environments and practises, workspace design, including the appropriate use of standing desks and other specialised equipment.

Habit Health will always impart its knowledge to better educate individuals on how to proactively help themselves avoid injury, stay well and healthy in their working environment, whether that be at work or at home.

In addition to the traditional Office based workplace assessment Habit Health also provide ergonomic assessments for employees working from vehicles, using forklifts, working in factory or retail environments and for employees working from home.

Assessments are offered at the company workplace, in employees home offices and via Telehealth for people in remote locations.
