About Event

work makes this somewhat easier, yet in order to reap the benefits, we need to understand basic human biomechanics and the dichotomy of human ‘sameness’ in consideration of ‘inherent individuality’.

The point of difference of this presentation will be to ensure you question the benefit of the bland ergonomic workstation checklist, designed to fit the human to the task. The presentation goal is to raise awareness of the benefit of carefully considered workstation ergonomics by enhancing your understanding of the foundation principles of workstation set-up.  This will be achieved by underpinning the key principles in a practical and commonsensical way.  At the end of the presentation, you will be better equipped to manipulate elements in the environment and ‘fit the task to the human’, which will, in turn, foster a culture of inclusivity and physical well-being in your workplace(s).

Content includes:

Sitting Workstation Set Up
Standing Workstation Set Up
Sitting versus Standing
An Alternative
Staying Healthy At Work
Workspace Basics and Mobile Work
