COVID-19: Our Current Services To You

Are you currently home working when normally you would be office based? Your set up with the display screen equipment that you are working with at home can pose a risk. It is therefore advised that you carry out a basic DSE assessment to minimise this risk (The HSE website has information for you to check your set-up or visit acpohe.co.uk). If you are employed, you may be provided with a checklist to complete.

In the event that any initial steps you have put in place still results in discomfort when you are working at your desk we can help. We are offering initial one to one consultations via Zoom or telephone and as Covid restrictions relax we could attend your home and help you directly with the optimum DSE set-up with the equipment you are using.

Also, North Oxford Physiotherapy Clinic is now open and offering clinic appointments. Measures are in place to minimise risk to our clients when attending the clinic. If you would prefer to consult over the telephone/zoom this can also be offered.

You can contact us via our website enquiry form or by telephoning 01869 345354

Manual Handling

Manual Handling

Employees can be at risk of manual handling injuries in almost every workplace.

Risk can come from:
  • repetitive and heavy lifting
  • bending and twisting
  • exerting too much force
  • many other causes

Not all injuries can be prevented, but the likelihood of their occurring can be greatly reduced through training in the correct use of equipment, posture, stance and the application of force.

According to the latest figures* musculoskeletal disorders cost British society £5.7 billion every year. Cut down the cost to your company by taking preventative action today. Call Oxford Ergonomics for full details of our manual handling training and education programmes.
