Here at Office Reality we provide a wellbeing consultancy. As part of this consultancy, we can take a closer look at ergonomics by carrying out workplace assessments using a simplified workstation assessment process. The process by passes the need for site visits which has been limited over the past 18 months or so. An email assessment is followed up with a phone call which results in a eeeemail report highlighting areas of risk and the possible solutions.
