Workplace Assessments

Employees spend a large part of  their day working, so it is important to ensure they are safe. Workplace assessments go beyond correctly setting up desks (although that is important); we look at the whole environment in which a staff member operates in. This includes their equipment, the boxes they may lift, how they move around the area they work in, and their transport. Demonstrating you have your staffs’ wellbeing and safety in mind can benefit your business in several ways, such as increased productivity and work satisfaction.

Completing a workplace assessment means staff joints, posture, eyesight, mental health and overall wellbeing are all protected.

Benefits of workplace assessments include:

  • Prevention of injury for workers in the office, factory and at home
  • Full risk assessment of the office and/or working from home arrangements
  • Keeping staff safe and productive through specialised recommendations for ergonomic equipment
  • Trials of ergonomic equipment
  • Staff knowing their health and wellbeing is valued
  • Potential to reduce or minimise your businesses workers’ compensation premiums
Pre-employment Assessments

We are dedicated to ensuring you find the right staff for your business. Our team of experts provide in-depth pre-employment assessments to determine if a candidate can safely perform the open position. If not, we can identify alternative roles for the desired candidate or suggest adjustments.
