Established in 2005, Bodysmart has been one of Perth’s leading providers of ergonomic assessments for corporations that include Inpex, Rio Tinto, Woodside Energy, Bechtel and many Government Departments. Our ergonomic consultants are highly experienced, qualified physiotherapists and our philosophy extends much further than treating aches and pains.
What does an Ergonomic Assessment involve?
A workstation assessment focuses on computer and desk ergonomics, identifying ergonomic hazards and making adjustments. An Ergonomic Assessment is traditionally conducted within the company’s work environment. A Bodysmart ergonomic consultant will travel to the workplace to conduct the assessment.
- Risk Identification considering symptoms, tasks and hazards.
- Ergonomic Assessment of work posture and equipment.
- Ergonomic Office Adjustment of current equipment.
- Office Ergonomics Action Plan including recommendations and prescription of ergonomic equipment (if unavailable internally).
- Ergonomic Training and Ergonomic Resources including postural training, stretching education and handouts.
- Ergonomic Equipment Supply (if required).
- Optional Follow-up re-assessments for symptomatic people or to adjust new equipment (especially chairs).
As our physiotherapists are all multi-skilled in the field of ergonomics and musculoskeletal treatment of office workers, they are able to better understand an employee’s aches and pains, and customise ergonomic office assessments and adjustments to reduce injury risk factors.
