Office ergonomics aims to deliver optimal working conditions to ensure the health and safety of those who work at a desk. Through optimising various factors, it is possible to achieve a satisfying, comfortable and labour productive office environment for your employees. Such factors predominantly include re-configuring or introducing office equipment and furniture. Providing your employees with ergonomic solutions is beneficial for total factor productivity as it minimises musculoskeletal pain and consequent insurance claims. Office equipment that can be optimised include computer screens, the keyboard and mouse as well as the addition of wrist rests and document holders.

KINNECT’s ergonomic assessment and training programs are designed to educate workers throughout Australia on correct ergonomic principles. We also assess each worker’s environment to ensure they are correctly set up. Our range of ergonomic assessments and training programs include basic or comprehensive assessments, group assessment and sit to stand workstation training.

The benefits of providing your employees with office ergonomics includes:

  • Reduced compensation costs – one-third of compensation is paid out to cases of musculoskeletal conditions caused by poor ergonomics.
  • Employee engagement – providing your employees with ergonomic options demonstrates genuine care factor. Furthermore, it has been shown to lessen absenteeism, reduce staff turnover, increase employee engagement and boost overall morale.
  • Productivity growth – office ergonomics equals more efficiency due to less exertion and pain minimisation. The gained efficiency means more productivity from your employees. Increased productivity is a measure of greater economic performance and economic growth.
  • Quality of work – poor ergonomics can cause employee irritability which makes it easy to forget important work details.
