OFFICE ERGONOMICS AND EDUCATIONAL SESSIONS

Engage Therapy - Rehabilitation Services in Victoria, BC

COULD YOUR OFFICE RUN MORE EFFICIENTLY?

Office employers often face the challenge of retaining skilled workers. The loss of employees due to repetitive strain injury and mental health issues is an ongoing problem. Post-pandemic stress has also been on the rise. Many employees have experienced difficulty adjusting between working-from-home to the hybrid model (or the mandatory full-time office requirement).

Consequently, Worksafe BC insurance claims and premiums have also increased.

At Engage Therapy, our clinicians offer comprehensive office ergonomic assessments both in-house and virtually to improve individual employee functioning within office settings, including those who work from home.

Group educational sessions are also available, focusing on recognizing early signs of musculoskeletal injuries, addressing common ergonomic issues, and preventing recurrent ergonomic issues.

Office Ergonomics Education Sessions**

Designed to offer a practical introduction to basic office ergonomics. The session is delivered by our clinician and deals specifically with identifying problems and discomfort related to computer use and other office equipment.

The goal of the session is to provide participants with the tools to adjust their own workstation and self-identify any ergonomic related issues their workstation may be creating. Individuals will be able to recognize the early signs of discomfort that can arise while working and be able to prevent ergonomic problems and injuries through workstation setup and stretches.

**How about a lunch and learn? During this session we can provide delicious Latin American food from a local caterer based in Victoria. Upon booking inquiry please indicate if you are interested in this optional add-on.
