The Ergo and Self-Care Competencies for today’s mobile, screen-intensive and increasingly sedentary workforce!
Beyond Ergo is an injury prevention training and consultancy firm, founded by Dr Elizabeth Kirk (PhD) in 2014.
Elizabeth is one of Australia’s leading researchers and trainers in behaviour-based office ergonomics and injury prevention training, with a special interest in call centres.
Dr Kirk’s findings revealed the need to provide more than a talk or an eTool when it comes to ergonomics. To reduce pain and increase productivity, to decrease staff costs and increase staff retention, businesses must provide new work skills that allows employees to work anywhere with any screen.
Beyond Ergo provides unique multidisciplinary programs. Our rigorous testing and trials deliver vastly superior results than anything currently available on the market.

Training That Delivers Results
Work-related musculoskeletal discomfort and disorders are considered the most recognised and significant negative health issues associated with the use of personal computers.
Despite decades of office ergonomics training, ergonomics furniture and workplace wellness programs, most computer-based businesses, such as call centres, still find injury rates are increasing, and costs are escalating.
Why? Because training was focused on the wrong things and delivered in the wrong way.
