Are you sitting comfortably?

Having a safe and comfortable workstation is essential to your physical and mental wellbeing. Common risks from using computers are eye fatigue, musculoskeletal discomfort (aches and pains in your back, arms, wrists) and stress-related conditions.

If you are experiencing any difficulties or would just like some guidance with your workstation set-up please contact to request a link to the School's interactive e-learning, training and assessment tool AssessRite.

AssessRite covers the latest trends in business working and provides additional information and guidance on the safe use of laptops and mobile devices and optimal workstation set-up for new and expectant mothers.

Once you have completed your online assessment the outputs will be reviewed by the health and safety team and a one-to-one personal assessment arranged if required.
