Workstation Assessment Cairns
People were not designed to sit all day in front of a computer. There is a significant amount of evidence to prove that poor workplace ergonomics can lead to:
- Muscle aches and pains
- Muscle tightness and fatigue
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Decreased productivity
- Disengagement from work
- Risk of workers compensation claims
Correct workstation set-up is essential, as all these problems are preventable. We offer a range of ergonomic workstation assessments that can optimise your workstation set-up:
- Brief Assessment (a short screening assessment to identify potential injuries and risks)
- Comprehensive Assessment (a more detailed assessment that will examine your known injury history, and provide advice on available treatment and recommendations for suitable ergonomic adjustments)
- Bulk ergonomic assessment (an assessment for several team members or a whole office)
- Telehealth assessment (for workers in regional or remote locations, which can be brief or very comprehensive)
Our workstation assessments are detailed and thorough. We will observe your workspace, posture and practices in your workplace in Cairns. Our specialist Cairns team will make practical and simple ergonomic recommendations that will help ensure:
- You have optimal working posture
- You have optimal comfort
- You are protected from the risk of strain or injury
- You can focus effectively on your work
These recommendations will cover workstation set-up, equipment modification and alternative equipment options, and will be tailored to your individual workplace environment and needs.
Return to work Cairns
Often an injury, illness, disability or major life adjustment can change your ability to perform your job. Our rehabilitation specialists can help you plan and facilitate your return to work in Cairns, following:
- Physical injuries
- Chronic health conditions
- Mental health conditions and psychological stressors
- Conflict situations
Our multi-disciplinary and fully co-ordinated approach relies on appropriate professional input with a focus on early intervention. We conduct regular and timely reviews of return-to-work plans to effectively monitor the achievement of rehabilitation objectives.
Workplace Assessment Cairns
Navigating a return to work can be challenging sometimes, particularly following extended time away from the workplace. It can be a difficult task to balance the mix of requirements from all stakeholders, including medical practitioners, the business and the insurer when returning to work on reduced capacity.
A workplace assessment from Strive will help you safely return to your job without jeopardising your health. We can identify the critical demands of your work tasks and safely evaluate your functional capacity against your work-related performance criteria. During a Strive workplace assessment, we will identify ways of modifying your work demands or working environment to facilitate a safe and sustainable return to work. This may include temporary or permanent measures. We may use a Graded Suitable Duties Program to assist you to restore your functional tolerances in a graduated manner.
If your organisation is within the Cairns region and you require a Workplace Assessment, contact our Cairns office today.

Our collaborative approach provides you with effective injury treatment, injury prevention strategies and rehabilitation management programs.
