Ergonomics

Premier services also include the provision of Occupational and Ergonomic Physiotherapy and workstation assessments.

We have a track record of success working with corporate employers tangibly improving the productivity, health and wellbeing of the workforce, enabling them to also meet the legislative requirements upon them as employers.

Since the Health & Safety Regulations were amended in 2002, Ergonomic Workstation Assessments have become an important aspect of many companies Health & Safety policy and practice.

An estimated 35% of the UK’s working population suffers from back pain and 17% from limb disorders (arms, legs), costing UK businesses up to £6 billion in production loss each year.

To help comply with these regulations Premier Therapy offer support with:

  • Computer Workplace Assessments (DSE – Display Screen Equipment)
  • Manual Handling Assessments
  • Ergonomic Assessments
  • Assessments of Workplaces for Pregnant Employees
  • Assessments of Workplaces for Employees with Health Problems

We perform detailed risk analysis and thorough reporting following on-site visits and interviews.

Our assessments are carried out by Occupational Physiotherapists and Ergonomic Consultants experienced in their field.

We have strong supportive evidence and statistics that have been compiled over the last three years that details in depth, the bottom line cost savings that a global client has made from our working alliance, amounting to 6.7 million pounds across their workforce of 10,000, in the year ending 2006 alone.
