Office Ergonomic Assessments

No matter what the job requirements might be, comfortable, happy workers are more likely to perform optimally and avoid sustaining work related injuries. Small changes in the way workstations are set up, tasks are performed and breaks are utilised, can all make a huge difference to a worker’s long term health.

KINNECT’s Ergonomic Assessments and Training Programs are designed to educate workers in Brisbane, Sydney, Perth, Canberra, Melbourne and throughout Australia, on correct ergonomic principles and to assess each worker’s environment to ensure they are correctly set up thereby minimising the risk of injury, facilitate health and well-being, and enhance productivity and performance.

Having an ergonomic assessment conducted in your workplace can:
