Ergonomics / Worksite Assessment

Gerard Guillen is our Physiotherapist with a Post Graduate Diploma in Ergonomics. He can provide worksite assessments to ensure your work area is set up correctly. Gerard can also advise correct work positioning or posture, manual handling and back care education to individuals or groups.

By using an ergonomic approach, the work environment is adjusted to suit body type, work tasks and movement efficiency, helping to prevent injury and return to the workplace after being injured.
