Assessments and Training

Workstation Assessments

A popular service, we can advise you or your staff on the most suitable equipment and software to help them. This usually involves a visit to our office in Borehamwood or a site visit to inspect the working environment of the person being assessed and to understand their objectives. We then prepare a report with recommendations of equipment, software and suppliers.

Ergonomic Assessments

5.4 million working days were lost in sick leave due to repetitive strain injuries (RSI) in 2002 (source TUC). Ergonomic interventions are proven both to help prevent such injuries and to help sufferers return to work successfully. The ergonomic approach to solving problems such as RSI, carpal tunnel syndrome, back injuries and stress requires an understanding of safety, comfort and efficiency. Legislation now emphasises that ergonomics must be an essential aspect of health and safety in the workplace.

The RSI Shop are specialists in ergonomics and adapting computers to suit the individual.  We carry out Workstation Assessments and advise and supply computer products to organisations to help their staff to work safely and in comfort.
