Whatever your occupation, The Back Shop offers the highest level of Posture Assessment. Our proven service identifies the most comfortable and supportive ways to help prevent strain on your back and neck. In store we offer realtime video analysis and correction whilst on site we can complete and provide ergonomic workstation analysis.
Please note that this is an independent ergonomic assessment which forms part of our service to our clients to ensure that they receive high quality and professional information regarding their working environment. The Back Shop, established in 1984, has had 20 years of extensive experience in the commercial supply of specialist ergonomic seating, desking and accessories and we also provide workstation solutions. We offer all our corporate clients a comprehensive package that is tailored to their needs. This includes advice on space management, workstation design as well as posture assessments, which would identify an individual's requirements/needs.
Following an assessment, the client and referring agent will receive a report within 10 working days. The report will highlight the issues arising, and what action would be required by the employer to impliment any of the solutions/recommendations to meet the employee's needs. The assessment results are recorded and filed and a report with recommendations for improvements are submitted to the employer for further action.
Workstation assessment: Display Screen Equipment, seating, desk, work space, telephone, document use, storage and working height.
Working Environment: including temperature, lighting and noise.
Other Factors: including software use, work practice, pace of work, lifting, pulling/pushing or over reach risks and other work tasks as required.
Anthropometric data: specific measurements may be taken as part of the above assessment to ensure correct client to chair fit.
N.B. The whole field of Health and Safety at work is complex and, in some cases, confusing but we have tried here to provide an overview of the general principles to which we work and provide some insight into the legal responsibilities of the employer.
