Preventing Occupational Muscoloskeletal Disorders in The Office
Training Your Staff To Prevent Musculoskeletal Disorders
Providing your employees with the knowledge they need
You can provide your employees with greater awareness, understanding, motivation and the tools to help prevent musculoskeletal (MSK) injuries occurring whether in the office or at home. MSK and absence is a massive problem in the workplace – 40% of work-related absence in 2015 was due to MSK injury and discomfort (HSE)
Reactive treatments help employees back to work quicker, but the real goal is prevention, to stop injuries occurring in the first place by providing site-based workshops that are:
- Delivers immediate impact
Employee engagement to injury prevention
Occupational Health data shows that a significant percentage of people using OH services who have MSK injuries or conditions, could have prevented this by taking simple steps to address their own health and wellbeing. We want to help you to provide the information to your staff that will help them prevent these issues arising.
We Understand Office Workers Needs
For office workers, DSE assessments typically meet minimum legal requirements but usually don’t address how employees actually use their work equipment or set up their workstations. The provision of leaflets and training sessions can also be dull and irrelevant to individuals’ actual work tasks.
Ergoblitz workshops change all that.
Tailored to your working environment
Ergoblitz delivers short, memorable, interactive workshops which educate groups of employees on how to help prevent MSK injuries/disorders from occurring. These are delivered directly on the office floor or in meeting rooms. They can be tailored to suit your business and so increase relevance and effectiveness. The content of the workshop typically includes:
- MSK disorder prevention
- Setting up your workstation
- Moving during your day
- Desk-based stretching exercises
- Question & Answer session
Our workshops are supplemented on the day with individual mini DSE assessments to reinforce the positive learning experience.
- Delivered in an engaging and memorable format
- Training outcomes are practical, immediate and effective
- Large number of employees can participate in one day
- Can cost as little as £10 per employee
Over 95% satisfaction every time!
