Why an office ergonomic workshop ?

Pain associated with prolonged office work is responsible for significant financial losses for organisations, in the form of both presenteeism and absenteeism.

The purpose of office ergonomics is to bring personalised adjustments for the user, including worksite modifications and new equipment.

This is where we help you get better at identifying problems, and solving them !
