Whether it is a standard workplace assessment, which needs to fulfil minimum HSE requirements, or a bespoke detailed workplace assessment, Connect has the answer.
Onsite musculoskeletal/ergonomic risk assessments can be provided on request to assist managers in identifying the potential risks to staff of sustaining a recordable injury or accumulative strain. Temporary restrictions or specific alterations to working practices can be discussed in order to avoid absence, allow early return to work or prevent further injury.
