Workstation assessments delivered by chartered physiotherapists and ergonomic specialists

Your people’s work environment can impact on their comfort, safety and long-term health as much as the tasks themselves. Equipment, tools, furniture and lighting can all contribute to the development or exacerbation of musculoskeletal (MSK) disorders.

Workstation assessments are legally required so that employers can reduce risk and maintain health and wellbeing. Our ergonomic workstation assessment solutions also help inform workers on steps they can take to improve their own situations.

    WSA assessment options

    The workstation assessment can be conducted on your premises on a one-to-one basis with immediate feedback. Or, depending on the workplace environment, we can also carry out work style assessments via virtual platforms like Zoom or Teams.


  • Educate employees

    The workstation assessment is geared towards elevating awareness amongst your people. Afterwards, your workers will fully understand how to make any immediate or future adjustments to their individual workplace situation.

  • Prevent injuries

    The WSA assessment flags up posture, pain and potential injury issues that could become long-term problems. And the workstation assessment report helps resolve these early by signposting to relevant services or specialists.

  • Empower managers

    Your managers will learn how to advise workers, enabling them to reduce sickness and absenteeism arising from MSK conditions. And they’ll be safeguarding wellbeing and productivity while supporting health and safety measures.

Workstation assessment FAQs

  • Who is legally required to be given a workstation assessment?

    Essentially, anyone in a static role. The job could be on the factory floor, at the supermarket checkout or behind a desk. If it’s standing or sedentary, workplace assessments, including computer workstation assessments, are a statutory obligation for employers. Our solutions are designed to give you peace of mind in a strict regulatory environment while mitigating any potential compensation claims.

  • Who carries out the workplace assessment?

    All our chartered physiotherapists blend specialist knowledge of workplace ergonomics with clinical expertise across a host of work environments. They’ll provide a detailed rationale for every recommendation they make, calling on years of experience. Their individual care and professionalism will show your people that you’re serious about their safety and comfort.

  • What adjustments are typically needed after a workstation assessment?

    A written report will detail current and potential associated health impacts of each employee’s workstation. The report will outline how to act on the recommendations, and why these support workers. Adjustments might involve varying or replacing machinery or equipment, or making changes to lighting or ventilation. Suggestions may also focus on simple tweaks such as optimising posture or taking longer breaks.
