Workstation Setup Assessment Training Course
This Workstation Setup Assessment Training course will cover the misunderstood basics of assessing a workstation. Though it seems trivial on the surface, it is highly overlooked what long term health problems and even injuries can occur from not using the right equipment and not rectifying an incorrect posture.
Turn on a computer, pull out chair, sit down and start to work. Repeat this daily, and like many others repeat this yearly. Having bad posture or using equipment inappropriately over a period of years, is more likely to create a long term illness as a result.
Having a great workstation setup doesn't end at forming a good posture or using the right equipment, it also means understanding the importance of regular breaks. Again these are overlooked because well, we can have a break anytime but many don't, many carry on working. Taking a break is part of a balanced work-life.
