Corporate Health & Ergonomics

Kimberly Ng


Denis Mecklenburg has done an amazing job in delivering the Ergonomics program for us. He has been instrumental in identifying issues so that corrective actions can be taken before an injury occurs. It gives my co-workers assurance to know that professional help is available and that the company cares about their health and well-being. I believe that other companies would benefit and find value in working with PhysioActive too.

Your business should run like a well-oiled machine. However, there are hidden dangers in any office. Poor posture and repetitive movements can lead to back problems, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other strains and sprains among your workforce.

As a result, you lose time and money from increased employee absenteeism and decreased productivity. Furthermore, it will be harder to retain these employees.

The Expert PhysioActiveApproach

Show your workers that you truly care by utilising PhysioActive’s corporate health programmes. We’ll evaluate your workplace and/or individual employee workstations for optimal ergonomics and a healthy environment. Our expert corporate physiotherapists will provide advice and solutions to help get your workforce healthy. In turn, you’ll benefit from happier employees, fewer absentees and increased productivity!

We offer several customised packages for your convenience:

1. One-on-One Ergonomic Assessments by Corporate Ergonomic Physiotherapists
This is an individual assessment of one employee’s work area, allowing our highly-trained and experienced physiotherapists to offer their expert advice and recommendations. This package is ideal for employees with chronic issues or injuries.

2. In-house Physiotherapy Sessions
For your healthy employees, our physiotherapists can visit your office to provide professional advice and exercise instruction every month. This is a great way of showing concern for your employees and helping to prevent injuries.

3. Lunch & Learn Talks
Our lunch & learn talks are a superb method of reaching small groups of employees. Our professional physiotherapists will demonstrate good posture, helpful exercises, and proper workstation setup to avoid injuries.

Frequently Asked Questions

What exactly is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics is the term applied to the field of science that studies and designs the human-machine (tool), human-work environment and human-human interfaces to prevent injury and illness, and to improve work performance.

What is the purpose of Ergonomics in the workplace?

Good ergonomics practices and the application of sound ergonomics principles in the design of office, workplace, jobs and tasks have a positive impact on workers, work tasks and the work environment. The economic impact of ergonomics can also be illustrated through a reduction in injury or illness rates, a reduction in costs associated with injury and illness, and improvement in workplace productivity. Whether you work in an office, drive a taxi or wait tables, Ergonomics can play a big part in your health.

Are Ergonomics practices mandatory?

There are legislations set in Singapore to ensure that all stakeholders take reasonably practicable measures to ensure the health and safety of every employee and others who may be affected by the work being carried out. The Workplace Safety and Health Act and SS 514: 2005 Code of Practice for Office Ergonomics for instance, are validations of the importance of Ergonomics practices.

What happens when I do not practice proper Ergonomics?

Physical stress placed on your body can lead to cumulative trauma disorders and repetitive stress injuries which create a life-long impact on your health. Common symptoms include pain, muscle fatigue, loss of sensation, tingling and reduced motivation and performance. Let us help you to reduce strain, fatigue and injuries with sound ergonomic principles.

Are all physiotherapists qualified to provide ergonomics consulting?

While there may be transferrable skills in the field of Physiotherapy, a physiotherapist who is specialised in Occupational Health / Human Factors & Safety will have the best understanding and capability to provide ergonomics consulting. At PhysioActive, we have a network of certified occupational health physiotherapists who have been providing specialist services to companies of different sizes.

Do you provide services for large companies?

Yes. We can create a bespoke package that provides real, measurable return on investment for your company.
