Countless Australian workers are limited in their ability to sit and stand in the workplace for prolonged periods of time due to pre-existing injuries or conditions - and sometimes these conditions are formed as a direct result of employers not implementing the correct ergonomic furniture within the work environment.
Posture Balance manufacture a range of therapeutic and custom chairs to alleviate the symptoms of physical conditions aggravated by sitting - and are experts in the area of ergonomics. Their range of products will be on display to learn about and try for yourself, along with some key advice provided on how to to sit, stand and step correctly in your work environment. This information will help you make more informed choices and recommendations for your clients, colleagues, and for yourself.
If you work in allied health, injury management, disability employment services, or are an OH&S representative or Office Administrator of an organisation within Latrobe Valley - then this event is for you. We also encourage you to bring along anyone who may suffer from a physical condition and would like to see what kind of supports are available to them in the workplace.
You will also hear about an Australian Government fund that can reimburse the cost of this equipment for eligible participants suffering from permanent conditions in the workplace.
