Workshop TitleWell adjusted: workstation assessor training

Summary of the overall aims of the course

Poor work station ergonomics can lead to serious and long-term musculoskeletal injuries, as well as sickness absence. Providing a safe workplace environment, including workstation, is a legal responsibility. But that's not easy to do if you don't know what to look for, and what to change.

This short course will train your staff to conduct workstation station assessments and address any issues they find. Delegates will learn about back care, injury prevention and risk reduction. Then using a template provided, delegates will conduct a workstation analysis.

Course objectives

At the end of the course, delegates will be able to:

  • Identify the task related, DSE, furniture and environmental risks related to workstations;
  • Explain the possible ill-health and injury consequences of poor workstation design;
  • Describe administrative and physical control measures (including eye sight testing, and measures for pregnant workers);
  • Demonstrate correct workstation layout and posture; and
  • Evaluate hazards and risks in workstation use with a checklist and template.

Target audience

This course is aimed at ‘would-be’ DSE assessors or VDU assessors, HR professionals, or anyone in the workplace who has responsibility for health & safety or may be required to assess the risks in their own, or other workstations.

This course is most cost effective for workplaces with 5 or more staff who spend a significant percentage of their day working from desks. (if you have less than 5 staff, why not contact us to arrange for our health & safety consultant to complete workstation assessments for you?)
