Combining Office Ergonomics and Wellness to Build New Self-Care Competencies
Call Centres and Large Organisations
Decreasing the risk of discomfort and injury takes more than a talk or a quick demo.
By combining the strengths of participative ergonomics, vocational education and training, and behaviour-based safety approaches, the Beyond Ergo training builds your teams injury prevention skills. Skills that need to become everyday work habits, applied at any workstation and with multiple screens.
This program is designed to support your staff in modern, dynamic work environments. Screens are now an integral part of our work and leisure, and staff need to know how to manage risks when hot desking in the office, in a home office working on the run.
Beyond Ergo takes training one step further by ensuring training transfer, encouraging ownership of personal health and safety, and supplying the ongoing support needed for consistent training application and skill development.
These programs focus on the long-term goal of any health and safety training, that is, to build a safety culture that reduces rates of injury and increase productivity. It does this by ensuring every employee has the knowledge and skills to implement appropriate safety solutions to protect themselves and the people around them.

“Until I undertook the ergonomics training, I didn’t realise that my workstation was set up incorrectly and the bad postures that I had developed over time. The course has given me good insight on how important it is to have my workstation set up correctly and to be comfortable while sitting for long periods of time. The simple illustrations are easy to follow and are now beside my workstation to prompt me. Our employees feel like someone was trying to help them prevent unnecessary physical discomfort. Additionally, the training will enable me to make the best decision when purchasing equipment that delivers the best valuable ergonomic solution.”

“I found the training and knowledge you provided to be very comprehensive. Little things, such as the monitor height on the desk, which I already thought I knew about, proved to be really interesting and beneficial. I have now changed my monitor height, which has improved my neck position and reduced the strain previously felt in this area”.
