Workplace ergonomics

Workplace ergonomics has become more important than ever. With so many people spending their day sitting down. Sitting is now seen as the new smoking. Sitting for long periods in the same position (or immobilizing your body) can cause all kinds of short- and long-term complaints. Think of neck and shoulder complaints (CANS) in the short term, while in the long term joint damage (osteoarthritis), weakened ligaments and a decrease in muscle strength are lurking.

In addition, we find that many people have outdated ideas about adjusting the workplace correctly, recognizing the first symptoms of CANS and remedying them.

At AmstelFysio, we have extensive experience in conducting workplace ergonomics workshops. These workshops focus on training your staff and focus on self-empowerment. We put the vitality of your staff first!

We teach your staff how best to set up the workplace, how to reduce the negative effects of prolonged sitting and how to recognize and remedy the first symptoms of injury.

What does your staff learn?

After the workshop, your staff will be able to:

  • Adjusting the chair yourself in the right way
  • Properly adjust the rest of the workstation and work envelope
  • To reflect on one's own physical functioning
  • Timely intervention when complaints arise


Better productivity

A vital employee usually has more energy, which ensures better productivity, concentration, a better working atmosphere and collegiality. By preventing complaints, there is a high chance of decreasing absenteeism.

Our workshops last one hour, can accommodate groups of up to 30 people, and are taught by one of our therapists at your location. This way we keep the workshops intensive with plenty of individual attention and time for questions.
