Wellness at Work

 

We deliver onsite workshops aimed at prevention of injuries and education for your employees. 

We have some options targeting both sedentary and active workers and a telehealth option that workers are able to access from remote locations. 

Comfort At Work (remote via telehealth)

Being comfortable at work is an essential part of a worker’s job satisfaction and we want to help you and your employees achieve this during this unplanned period of home working.

We are aware that most office workers could be working from home for the foreseeable future. The current environment we are facing is very stressful. These heightened stressors, in combination with working from home within potentially poorly designed or set-up workstations, we predict will lead to an increase in work associated discomfort, pain or injury.

Our Comfort at Work Telehealth workshop is delivered through Zoom by one of our experience Occupational Health Physiotherapists. We aim to provide a customer-focused service that is designed to meet your needs and we can discuss what you would like the service to specifically cover.

 

Examples of what the workshops usually include:

  • Information on how to self-assess and adjust a workstation, including advice on using items within the home to improve a temporary home workstation
  • Problem solving of some of the key issues people are experiencing with using a home workstation setup
  • Advice and practical tips on posture
  • Education regarding microbreaks and the benefits of keeping active throughout the working hours
  • Demonstration of workplace stretches and electronic handouts for participants with instructions for each exercise 

 

Group numbers:

We recommend a maximum of 10 people per workshop. If you have a larger group, we can run multiple workshops for you.

Cost:

$200 + GST
