Desk posture and desk or workstation assessments are vital to your health at work, and involve a specialist in workstation assessor visiting you at your workplace to discuss your individual needs and reviewing the equipment you use (chair, desk, monitor, keyboard, mouse, phone etc) and its positioning on your desk to ensure that it is the most suitable for your needs.

This assessment is not only a employer’s legal responsibility but also a valuable tool to ensure maximum comfort for individuals. In turn, this minimises the risk of injury, thus increasing productivity in the work place. See our DSE Assessment package for a number of brief individual assessments performed in the workplace, for prevention of symptoms and discomfort.

It is also beneficial for a specialist to undertake the assessment in cases where an individual has pain or fatigue symptoms or a diagnosed injury.  This will help to ensure that your workstation and environment are not contributing to your symptoms or impacting upon your recovery. See our Ergonomic Assessment package, for those experiencing symptoms for some time or with a medical diagnosis.

Currently we offer bespoke packages for many conditions and a whole range of services if they are needed, to suit your exact needs. See our list of Healthywork Services.
