Workstation Assessment Gold Coast
Human beings were not designed to spend all day sitting in front of a computer. Doing so, particularly with poor workplace ergonomics, can lead to:
- Muscle tightness and fatigue
- Muscle aches and pains
- Repetitive strain injuries
- Joint degeneration
- Spinal dysfunction
- Disengagement from work
- Decreased productivity
- Increased risk of a worker’s compensation claim
However, with optimal workstation set-up, all these problems are preventable. A correctly set up workstation will prevent the risk of injury, improve working posture and thus improve productivity.
Strive offers a range of workstation assessments:
- Brief Assessment (a short screening assessment to identify the potential risk for injury)
- Comprehensive Assessment (a more detailed assessment aimed at uncovering any known injury history, and providing advice regarding available treatment and recommendations for suitable ergonomic equipment)
- Bulk Ergonomic Assessment (to analyse your entire office)
- Telehealth (this can be a brief or comprehensive assessment for workers in a remote or regional location)
Our team of expert specialists will come to your Gold Coast workplace and assess your workstation set-up. We will first observe your workspace, work positions and practices, and then adjust your set-up to ensure:
- Your working posture is optimised
- Your comfort at work is optimised
- You are protected from the risk of strain or injury
- You can focus effectively on your work
Our practical recommendations will be tailored to your unique workplace needs and environment, and will cover workstation set-up, equipment modification or alternative equipment options.

Workplace Assessment Gold Coast
It can sometimes be challenging to navigate a return to work, particularly if the employee is returning on reduced capacity after an extended time away from the workplace. Putting together a graduated return-to-work program can be difficult, as you need to balance the mix of requirements from all stakeholders, including medical practitioners, the business and the insurer when returning to work on reduced capacity. The injured worker needs to know that they can safely return to their job without jeopardising either their health or their ability to perform the job.
A Strive workplace assessment can help facilitate a safe return to work, by identifying the critical demands of your work tasks and establishing the performance criteria against which the worker’s functional capacity will be evaluated. Our experienced rehabilitation team will identify temporary or permanent methods of modifying your work demands or environment to help you safely and sustainably return to work. 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 Gold Coast region and you need a workplace assessment, contact our Gold Coast office today.
