Canavan Byrne can help with Ergonomic assessments.
Ergonomics will ensure the equipment and furniture in a business suits the human body. It is the study of designing equipment and tools to fit the human body, its movements and its cognitive abilities.
Employers are obliged (under the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work Act 2005 section 12, General Application of the Regulations 1993 and 2007 and EC Council Directive 90/2270/EEC,) to assess the risks to health and safety at workstations with particular reference to eyesight, physical difficulties and mental stress.
Assessment of the workplace/workstations and redesigning them to suit the employee will prevent injury and will improve employee well-being.
