Drysdale Osteopathy • Ergonomics for the Workplace

I have just completed a fascinating course on Ergonomics, Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Assessment and Moving & Handling procedures.

This course is recognised by the Institute of Ergonomics and Human Factors.

The course allows an Osteopath to assess a person's working position. There are normally a number of improvements that can immediately be made to make a person more comfortable.

These improvements may include changing desk and chair heights, location of VDU, position of mouse, key board and screen, requirement of feet rests etc..

There are a number of conditions such as Low Back Pain, Headaches, Neck, Repetitive Strain Injuries (RSI) that are the result of poor work station arrangements.

There are a number of Non-Expensive aids, such as Foot Rests, Monitor Stands, Ergonomic Key Boards & Mice, Adjustable Desks and Document Holders that can, along with finding the best possible working position, help solve the problems associated with a Bad Workstation Arrangement.

The Work Station Assessment is all carried out in accordance with Health and Safety (Display Screen Equipment) Regulations 1992.
