Workstation Risk Assessment
 

Safe Hands provides workstation risk assessments and repetitive strain injury prevention training for any space where computers and other digital devices are used.

We want to help you improve workspace wellbeing. We believe a big part of this is having safe, comfortable workplaces and workstations that promote pain-free use of digital devices. We believe that feeling good is going to make you more creative, more productive and generally happier.

  • How Alexander Technique is getting me to exercise

    For me, the hardest part of exercising is getting myself to the exercise. Whether it’s a trip to the gym, a yoga class or taking a walk, it’s the starting that I find most difficult. The reason for this is because I often spend my pre-exercise time fretting about doing the exercise. Am I too tired […]

  • Organize your mind with a digital de-clutter

    I recently noticed that a friend has 711 unread emails in her inbox. I asked if it bothers her that she has so many messages waiting for action, and she admitted that it does. But, she said, I don’t have the time to deal with them, and even if I did, my responses would only […]

  • Lend me your laptop stand

    Go into any coffee shop, hotel lobby or co-working space, and you’ll see people bent over their laptops and smartphones. Every time I see someone typing and tapping away like this, I think: Wouldn’t it be great if we could borrow ergonomic accessories like laptop stands for use while we’re working (or just hanging out) […]

  • Prevent pain with mindful smartphone use

    Before you start reading this, take a moment to notice how you’re reading it. Are you leaning into or looking down at your screen? Are your shoulders rolled forward? Is your neck or back bent? What you have just done is start to bring the practice of mindfulness to your digital device use – a […]

  • My life without a smartphone

    Embarrassing confession: I don’t own a smartphone. To make calls, I use a 10-year-old little red Nokia. Why? Because I’ve got a repetitive strain injury. And using a phone that only allows me to make calls and send very short texts is one really big way I cut down on the taps and types, swipes […]

  • Is your smartphone the boss of you?

    “It was so relaxing – there wasn’t any phone signal and no internet.” This is how a friend described her recent holiday to me. Now be honest. When you find yourself in a place where you can’t connect, do you complain a little and then secretly smile at the relief of being free from your […]

How we can help you

Group talks with workstation set up demo

We’ll come in and demonstrate safe workstation set up to your team (in groups of up to 12 people at a time). We’ll talk to you about good digital habits and get a discussion going about ways to normalise movement in your workplace.

One-on-one assessments

We take a holistic approach for our one-on-one assessments, taking into account all of the workstations you use – at the office, at home, and everywhere in between – as well as your digital device habits and your overall health.

Tailor-made reports

We will provide a tailor-made report which outlines any problem areas, offers recommendations you can implement to improve workstation set up and digital device habits and provides advice on how to improve your whole workplace or individual situation.
We work wherever you work

Traditional offices

Do you work in a traditional office alongside loads of other people? Great! We can show you all how to set up safely and how to help each other stay safe even when we aren’t around to bug you about it.

Co-working spaces

Whatever shape your workspace takes, we can show you how to use it in the best way possible. We will demonstrate how to set up and how to keep yourself safe when you’re the only one responsible.

Everywhere else

We can show you how to work well wherever you are - using what’s readily available. And if we can’t visit you in person, we can do a virtual assessment via Skype.

What our clients say about us ...

Raquel’s extremely thorough assessment and recommendations not only made an improvement for the user but taught me so much about how to assess each individual’s behaviour and to consider every aspect of their life but most of all how to explain in a way that allows THEM to understand their own body.

Georga Costi - Safety Risk Advisor, National Theatre

Safe Hands were so helpful and gave such sensible, straightforward advice. Working with them has definitely made the phrases “health and safety” and “workplace assessments” seem less daunting and something which our small charity can comply with—with ease!

Jo Wilson - Chief Executive at Evelina Children’s Heart Organisation

Safe Hands did assessments with our entire team. They looked at each of our workstations and the way we were using them and then offered practical, inexpensive (or no-expense) ways we could make modifications to suit our specific needs. They really made us think differently about how we work and how to prevent pain.

Diana Nammi - Director at Iranian and Kurdish Women’s Rights Organisation

I had been experiencing a lot of pain in my shoulder, arms and back. Safe Hands watched the way I use my computer and my whole workstation and offered practical solutions I could put in place right away that have helped eliminate some of my pain. They really got me thinking about how I could change the way I use my desktop computer, iPhone, and even my laptop at home.
