The current pandemic hasn’t only caused a wave of Covid-19 cases – it has also caused a wave in musculoskeletal disorders/conditions. Under the present circumstances, our working environment is continuously changing and businesses and organisations will need support in adapting to these changes. Below we’ll give you some tips on how to handle the musculoskeletal care of your employees.
DSE Assessments: Display Screen Equipment
The majority of us use our phones, computers and other electronic devices for a large portion of our day so it’s important that we’re using them correctly. DSE assessments allow employers to assess whether employees are utilising their work equipment safely. These assessments may cover:
- Work equipment
- Work environment
- Interface between user and equipment
You can find out more about the DSE assessments that we offer here.
Working from home may mean that some employees are sat at their own DIY desk for multiple hours a day. While there may be thousands of ergonomic chairs and desks available to purchase, we understand that not everyone has the money to purchase these items. We have a full post about creating an ergonomic workspace that you can read here for more information.
This infographic from Yorbik details how to achieve the correct sitting posture at your workstation.
We also have an Adobe Spark Page dedicated to ergonomic workspaces which you can see here.
