Office Ergonomic Assessments

An ergonomically congenial work area is crucial to good working posture, without it, aches and pains, stiffness and headaches can eventually lead to staff needing to claim Work Cover assistance and take time off work.

Through an understanding of fundamental ergonomic principles Stretch Now can effect positive change in your organisation. We address sitting posture, desktop and equipment layout, vision and glare issues, work patterns, breaks and stress management.

The Stretch Now training programs encourage a healthy attitude of involvement, ownership and team participation, which not only has a very positive impact on the well-being of staff by reducing the number of computer related injuries in the work environment, but also increases workforce morale.

Stretch Now is a strong and dynamic team committed to excellence in health, fitness and well-being in the workplace. We are continuously developing innovative high quality programs to meet your organisation's needs.
