Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace to suit the capabilities or limitations of the worker. A workplace committed to ergonomic design and tailored workspaces will reap greater rewards – reduced costs, improved productivity, greater quality, increased employee engagement and a better safety culture.
The average office worker spends about 80% of their day sitting – so good posture, back care and ergonomic seating is vital to ensure health and wellbeing, as well as reduce the risk of back and neck pain, headaches and problems with legs and feet.
At Back Centre, we talk about your health first. We have spent more than 30 years helping our customers adapt workplaces to suit individuals.
In store, our team will spend as long as they need to discover a person’s exact needs. On-site, our experienced occupational therapist, Judy Ross, provides individual and group ergonomic assessments.
A session with Back Centre’s own occupational therapist, Judy Ross, will change the way you work. Judy has more than 25 years’ experience in office ergonomics and seating and injury management.
Judy conducts comprehensive on-site assessments of chairs and seating and workstations, analysing factors that may cause or aggravate any problems.
Injury management can be costly – the earlier problems are addressed, the better. When employees are experiencing musculoskeletal problems, an ergonomic workstation assessment can make a huge difference to their recovery.
