A healthy workplace creates a healthy business

Do you or your staff suffer from work related pain?

Poorly set up workspaces increase the likelihood of people developing shoulder pain, neck pain or back pain, headaches, or conditions such as OOS, RSI and carpal tunnel syndrome.

Whether you work in a factory, an office, at home or on the road, it can be hard to focus on the job if you are in pain. In addition to affecting productivity, ongoing chronic pain often impacts on other areas of your life and can leave you feeling miserable and unable to perform at your best.

      Jane provided me with straightforward advice on my workstation and desk set-up. Her approach was practical and easy to implement. I was staggered to find that a few adjustments to my workstation quickly resulted in relief from existing shoulder and wrist pain.

    • Working on the move?

      Do you spend time on the move? At a hot desk. On your mobile phone?
      If the answer to any of those is ‘often’, then the probability of you feeling neck pain or shoulder pain is high.

      Contact us to assess if your mobile and equipment usage outside of the normal workplace is affecting your health.

    • Employers

      While it’s relatively easy to identify and manage obvious workplace hazards, (like chemicals or industrial machinery) it can be easy to ignore or overlook day-to-day niggles or discomfort related to everyday tasks or the general workspace environment. Find out more about your obligations.
