Office Ergonomics

Office Ergonomics

Whether you’re coming from an HR, FM, H&S or Project perspective, our office ergonomics services will help you solve your problems. Our solutions are much more than a box ticking exercise. Click below to discover the ‘Workwise Way’ and how we can help you.

DSE/Workstation Assessments

So you may have done nothing in terms of DSE so far, or you may have had a complete office move, and want everyone to be assessed – that’s fine we can do that for you. Or you may have just a handful of people that you think need a little more specialist advice – you’ve tried a basic in-house assessment yourselves and don’t seem to be seeing any real improvements. Or just feel out of your depth in terms of the medical knowledge required to really understand what’s going on. And this is where we shine – we have lots and lots of experience of these situations and have the medical background to back it up.

DSE is where Workwise started. It’s been our core offering for many years now, and we’ve championed doing the ‘right’ way all along.

Not Just Box Ticking

It’s very easy to view DSE as a simple ‘tick box’/compliance exercise but actually good DSE ergonomics really can make a big difference to overall comfort and productivity in any office environment.

The Right Way

And the ‘right’ way doesn’t have to cost you a fortune either – very often it’s just a case of working with what you’ve already got rather than throwing it away and starting again. DSE is as much about behavioural change as much as anything else – simple changes very often make the biggest difference over a period of time.

1:1 Approach

So if you’re looking for specialist assessments in terms of pregnancy, injuries, disability, back to work, or even just some help in dealing with the more ‘demanding’ employees then we’d love to help.

  • 1:1 assessments of all employees

  • Pregnancy

  • Disability

  • Back to work

  • Home assessments

Group Approach

Sometimes a 1:1 approach simply isn’t feasible but you’re aware that there’s a knowledge gap there that needs to be addressed, so we can also provide a group DSE training approach that will reach more of your staff in a shorter space of time – tailored to your needs so we’re happy to chat when you’re ready.

  • Hot-desking training

  • Awareness days

  • DSE workshops

  • Floorwalks

DSE Assessor Training

Sometimes it just makes more sense to have people trained in-house to carry out the assessments. This allows you to react a little quicker and provide immediate advice to those needing it. So, we can also train you to do the assessments yourselves.

Train you in house.

We do 1 and 2 day DSE courses in-house – which one you choose depends on your current level of experience and confidence in carrying out the assessments – best to contact us and we can chat through which would suit you best. We can also provide refresher training for those that would like to update or improve their skills and knowledge and ‘Train the Trainer’ if that works better for you. We also have public courses and Agile Working seminars coming soon!

  • 1 or 2 day DSE Assessor Training

  • DSE Refresher Training

  • DSE Train the Trainer

  • Public DSE courses – coming soon

  • Knowledgeable/experienced trainers

  • Relaxed training style

  • Gives you the confidence you need to assess colleagues

Manual Handling

Manual handling is an essential life skill, and one that can have horrible consequences for those that continually get it wrong. So we think it’s important to teach these practical skills in any office environment, but in a practical and relaxed way that’s appropriate to your organisation and the people involved.

Manual Handling Training

We can do day or half day training of your staff, or even ‘train the trainer’ if you’d prefer to do it yourselves – whatever is right for you – just let us know.

  • Relaxed training style

  • Training adapted to your needs

  • Simple, practical advice with real world applications

  • Half day

  • Full day

  • Train the Trainer
