Ergonomics Courses

Poor ergonomics and prolonged sitting increase mortality rates similar to that of obesity and smoking. We’ll help equip your teams with practical solutions to reduce these risks to enhance your well-being and productivity.

Poor working posture has long been singled out as the main contributor of workplace-related musculoskeletal disorders amongst office workers. As employees continue to adopt hybrid working arrangements, organisations must, more than ever before, provide support for the practice of sound ergonomics.

Our ergonomics talks and workshops consider workspace design, user behaviour and task design to promote good work posture and habits. Although originally meant for computer users, the content can be adapted to any form of desk work.
