Green Star Ergonomics

ViOffice Office Ergonomics

Employee performance in the office is critical to how decisions are made and executed throughout the business. The health and productivity of the office worker is dependant upon physical, cognitive, psychosocial, environmental, and organisational factors.

ViOffice addresses essential workplace factors including job and task analysis, design for health and productivity, equipment selection for work teams or prescription for an individual. We are engaged to help with pre-occupancy and post-occupancy fit outs, as well as training to large or small groups, and 1:1 service consultation. We help, also, with advisory services that support a distributed workforce (how is work managed when work can occur anywhere, anytime?).
