Computer workstation assessments
Our approach to workstation assessments
We offer group workshop sessions for participants to learn about correct computer set up, preventing discomfort and best practice principles. Workshops typically take around 45 minutes and work best when combined with individual workstation checks.
Individual workstation checks are for people with no discomfort or who are new to the job. This assessment takes approximately 30 minutes. Individual characteristics, work organisation, workstation set up, illumination keying and mousing techniques are reviewed. Where practical adjustments are made to the set up and specific advice given.
For people experiencing discomfort, we offer a comprehensive workstation assessment that takes approximately 60 minutes. This assessment includes a review of the set up with additional in-depth assessment of the history of discomfort and symptoms experienced.
What can you expect from the process?
Each person receives an informative handout ‘Tips for Computer Users’ on workstation set up, exercises and strategies for preventing discomfort.
A written report provides recommendations and guidance on selecting suitable furniture or equipment as needed. Multiple workstation checks are summarised into one report.
