POOR posture in the workplace can lead to a range of symptoms including numbness, tingling and even pain.
ErgoCube is the new ergonomic assessment service available from Saxen Workplace Solutions introduced to reduce the incidence of upper limb disorders in the workplace and Saxen are offering a FREE workplace ergonomic assessment for local businesses.
During the assessment, a member of the Saxen ErgoCube team will advise on the layout of the workstation and office chair in relation to the tasks being carried out. Current injuries and flexibility will be taken into account and if any issues are identified, where appropriate, the individual could be offered a complimentary trial of ergonomic products to test at their desk.
Factors leading to poor workstation posture can be due to a poorly designed work environment or a lack of proper ergonomic adjustment of furniture items such as an office chair. Problems can also be due to lifetime habits, lack of awareness or existing injuries in an individual.
Saxen are a family-owned company specialising in office furniture and interior fit-out and office refurbishment projects for local businesses. ErgoCube products and the latest furniture and seating designs from British and European manufacturers are showcased in the recently renovated Saxen 7,000 sq ft. showroom in Newmilns, Ayrshire.
