Workstation assessment levels

Level 1

The Level 1 workstation assessment is the same as the Level 2 (see below), without a written report. 

Level 2

The Level 2 workstation assessment is only suitable for individuals with no significant issues. These involve a short discussion with the staff member at their desk regarding their comfort at work, their work habits and a look at the existing desk layout. Small changes may be made to the workstation to improve comfort; advice is given on posture and regular breaks. This process usually takes around 15-20 minutes. A short report is written for the HR file, which will document the assessment and provide specifications for any additional equipment that may improve the ergonomics of the workstation. 

Level 3

The Level 3 workstation assessment is for individuals with significant medical issues, this would include recent or recurring issues such as:

·       Lower, middle or upper back pain

·       Sciatica

·       Neck and shoulder pain

·       Arm, wrist and hand pain

·       Return to work after significant injury, illness or surgery

·       Migraines and headaches

·       Pregnancy

Pregnancy is also generally considered to require a Level 3 assessment. The assessment involves having a short discussion with the staff member (ideally in a separate room) about the history of the issues they have and how they are affected on a day to day basis.

We discuss what effect the issues have on their comfort at work, discuss work habits and take a look at the existing desk layout. If possible, we will make changes to the workstation during the assessment to improve comfort. Advice is also given on posture and regular breaks.

A level 3 assessment usually takes around 30 minutes. A report is then written which will document all of the above, which should form part of the HR file of the individual concerned. In the report we will provide specifications for any additional equipment that may improve the ergonomics of the workstation.

Having suffered back problems for some time, Grant has proved a great help in providing ergonomic seating. The chairs he has provided for the work place have proved to be a great investment.

I have been a client of Grant’s for many years and have found him to be professional and highly knowledgeable. I have purchased two office chairs from him in the past, one of which was in 1991 and was only recently replaced! This chair was transported from office to office over the years and was a superb investment. I would recommend him wholeheartedly.
