Our experienced health & safety consultants are on hand to continue to provide vital assessments for those who now find themselves working outside of their usual desk.
Your designated consultant will share a self-assessment document with you via email. This self-assessment will assist in identifying any homeworking ergonomic issues you may have. It includes a checklist that will help is complete a homeworking assessment of your home office setup.
Our ergonomics consultant will arrange for a video consultation. A number of video conferencing methods are available. Through your video consultation, your consultant will review your self-assessment and make appropriate changes to your work station, immediate working environment and anything else deemed necessary in order ensure that your home working ergonomics are correct. Throughout the assessment, screenshots will be taken in order to provide a ‘before and after’ view, so changes to the environment can be tracked. Safety questions will also be asked.
Your assessment will centre around practical advice, allowing you to work with what you have and to avoid any strain or injury from incorrect positioning of equipment.
Finally, the H&S consultant will then generate a report with all findings from the video consultation.

“I would like to confirm that Lorraine from Occupli did an Ergonomic assessment with me last Friday. I found it to be very, very thorough. Lorraine explained everything to me in detail. She taught me how to properly use and set the controls on my chairs, both in the interview room and at my desk. She helped me to move around the computer to the most advantageous position to cater for both my back problem and my eyesight. She noted the way I normally work, the type of work I do etc. in order to gauge the correct recommendation for me. I found her to be excellent and thorough.”
