If you’re the owner of a business and want to make sure that your employee’s work stations confirm to the latest ergonomic standards you should consider a professional work station assessment.

There are two types of workstation assessments available, depending on the size of your business.

If your business is small to medium sized, ergonomics experts will come to your company to inspect the work stations person. This is a solution for businesses that have a low number of employees and workstations.

For large businesses, and online workstation assessment is likely the better solution. This type of assessment is performed by the employees themselves by using a particular online assessment system. There, the employees are guided through a series of questions to find the where ergonomics can be improved.

Several firms in the United Kingdom offer professional work station assessments. I recommend that you get in touch with specialists that are local in your area.
