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
- 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.
