Ergonomic Assessment

Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy clinic is acutely aware of how a person’s work place can effect their physical health. With this in mind Waterford Chartered Physiotherapy Clinic provides consultancy in workplace ergonomics. Our skills as Chartered Physiotherapists makes us ideally suited to provide consultancy and implement health promotion and injury prevention strategies in areas where physical or sedentary work duties pose a risk of injury. We also provide expert treatment for work-related injuries and can prescribe individually tailored return-to-work programmes for staff on sick leave due to injury.

Many employees now work in roles that are sedentary in nature and that entail significant periods in front of Display Screen Equipment (DSE) such as computers, laptops and various other visual display units (VDU). Such prolonged sedentary lifestyles may result in adverse health effects for employees.

However many of these adverse health effects can be easily managed by carrying out workstation assessments for employees, and by providing relevant information on safe working at a DSE workstation. This will assist employers to comply with the requirements of the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007: Chapter 5 of Part 2: Display Screen Equipment

Recommendations can then be made regarding desk height, seating, computer and phone set up to prevent injuries from occurring.
