To Your Ergo and Self-Care Skills Workshop

Special Edition – Working from Home

Welcome to your skills workshop

Office ergonomic information is readily available, yet over 80% of employees in offices, contact centres and the like report aches, pain and musculoskeletal discomfort related to their work.

With COVID-19 forcing so many employees to suddenly work from home, with less support and less ergonomic equipment, a spike in work-related musculoskeletal disorders (MSD’s) and compensation claims seems inevitable,…but not for you!

By working through this virtual workshop, you start building new self-care competencies specifically designed to go beyond a set of general recommendations to show you the broad range of skills you need to flourish in screen-intensive work environments.

Filled with videos and supported by 4 downloadable PDF’s, this Special Edition practical workshop demonstrates a range of personal protective behaviours designed to increase comfort and productivity, and reduce pain and your risk of injury when working on a laptop at home.

Before you start, download this physical discomfort body map.

The Physical Discomfort Map helps identify current pain points needing immediate care and attention. We ask you to repeat this map in 3 weeks (just before your workshop accesses ends) so you can measure improvements, revisit the resources and ask any questions to help further improve your comfort.

If you have any questions, please send me a note through the communications box below.

Remember to bookmark this page for easy reference as you can revisit this workshop as many times as you need over the next month.
