Ergonomic advice

Your ergonomic work environment is important – find out how the Occupational Health Service can help you.

Consult a physiotherapist/ergonomist

It is important to adapt the workplace both to the job and the employee's personal circumstances, in order to create a healthy and well-functioning work environment.

The Occupational Health Service's physiotherapists/ergonomists can offer advice if you are at risk or are experiencing problems related to your work environment.

The physiotherapist can help you with

  • assessment of physical function,
  • advice on physical activity and relaxation,
  • advice on aids and working technique,
  • advice on vision ergonomics,
  • testing office chairs,
  • sample treatments where appropriate and
  • starting of rehabilitation measures.

Consultations take place via

  • email,
  • telephone calls,
  • digital meetings,
  • visits to the Occupational Health Service or
  • visits to your workplace.

If more-long-term treatment is required, employees are to consult public healthcare.
