Two, this will not only reduce time away from the workplace for aches and niggles caused by incorrect posture, but reduce the number of worker’s compensation claims for work related injuries. 

Three, having a safe and comfortable working environment will improve staff productivity, and improve morale and wellbeing. Need we carry on? 

What will our corporate ergonomics training cover? 

Our courses cover everything from explaining what a safety mindset means to assessing and setting up each individual’s work station. We’ll cover the common and best practices in office ergonomics, discuss the basics of anatomy and correct posture, and show your staff some simple stretching and warm-up exercises to perform when they’re at work. 

However, we also go one stage further with our tailormade training package, covering topics such as your organisation’s reporting protocols, and encouraging your staff to adopt a problem-solving approach to office ergonomics. 

We also have the added options of carrying out a comprehensive hazard and risk assessment for your business, and providing a report on any equipment that needs servicing or replacing. So, as you can see, we provide the kind of corporate ergonomics training Melbourne businesses prefer.

TIPS ON How to Ergonomically set your Workstation?

  1. Adjust the tilt of your seat so it is parallel to the floor
  2. Adjust the backrest so the largest part is in the small of your back
  3. Tilt the backrest to promote upright sitting (if backrest tilts)
  4. Remove the armrests from your chair, or ensure they are back far enough to allow your chair to get close to your desk
  5. Adjust the height of your seat so that when you sit up straight to type:
    • your shoulders are relaxed
    • your elbows are in line with the home keys on your keyboard and remain close to your body
    • your forearms are parallel to the ground or angled slightly downward
  6. Ensure your feet rest flat on the ground and your thighs are parallel to the ground. If this is not possible, you will need to find an appropriate footrest, adjusted to the correct height
  7. Ensure your keyboard and monitor are located directly in front of you. When typing, centre body between the “G” and “H” keys
  8. Adjust your keyboard height adjustment pegs so they are flat and so that your wrists are straight
  9. Place your mouse next to, at the same height as your keyboard
  10. Ensure your wrists and forearms are not resting on hard surfaces or sharp edges
    • A gel wrist rest and/or mouse pad is an easy and cheap solution
  11. Adjust your monitor so that:
    • the top of the screen is at eye level or slightly below
    • it is about an arms length distance from you
    • it is tilted to enable easy viewing and reduce glare (if glare is a problem, get a glare reducing screen or move your workstation)
  12. Place your document holder so it is next to and at the same height as your monitor.
