Computer-based work can have a significant impact on health, including predisposition to overuse injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome. Ergonomic adjustment of a workstation can therefore significantly reduce the risk and impact of injury.

Education will focus on the following:

  • How to recognise risk factors for musculoskeletal disorders and ergonomic issues in the work environment
  • How to recognise signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders relevant to the type of work conducted in the office space
  • Reporting processes for risk factors and musculoskeletal disorders
  • How to adjust ergonomic furnishings
  • The process for employees to request ergonomic furnishings
  • Appropriate posture and form

Kairros will also provide each staff member with an Ergonomic Education pack, which will information on all topics discussed.

  • Time: 1-2 hours
  • Who’ll benefit: all staff who work in an office environment
  • Outcomes: minimised risk of injury in office environments
  • Cost: $700 + GST*
