Can you undertake workplace assessments?
With advancing technology and increased automation, individuals are spending more time at their workstation. The corresponding increase in prolonged sitting subjects the body to additional strain and as a consequence health and safety issues have become a real concern. Farmhill Physiotherapy offers a comprehensive on-site work station assessment service performed by chartered physiotherapists. The assessment includes:-
HSE compliance check
Identification of urgent HSE non compliance issues
A detailed report giving recommendations for improvement, where appropriate.
Physios undertake a thorough assessment of each patient and decide the best treatment based on clinical experience, experimental learning and research evidence.
