Our new web site at ergonomics.co.uk has now been active for over two months and we continue to make enhancements. Whether you are a longstanding client or new to our products and services, we really want to know what you think of the site. We already have a rolling development programme with more new features planned for introduction in due course. However, we also have capacity to include new ideas or alter the emphasis of the changes – so what you want is the most important design driver. Please help us by completing the anonymous short survey here. We value your time so all contributors will be transfered to a separate draw page with an opportunity to win a £200 Red Letter Day voucher.
Our new web design allows us to introduce new products which we have not considered previously. The Vela Tango 510E is just such a product. Since we are no longer involved in the Access to Work programme, we used to think that the design might be too bespoke for our day-to-day requirements. However, we have reviewed this thinking recently, put it through our WoW Factor process and added it to the portfolio. It has many possible applications – both at work and at home – for users who cannot stand for long periods or live with a range of disabilities. Its unique design includes many clever features and the range of options makes it easy to specify a configuration to meet an individual’s needs.
Our National Roadshow & Training tour continues on July 31st – August 1st in Leeds. As before, the format consists of a free Product Showcase in the afternoon and evening of the Tuesday and two (low cost) half day training sessions on the Wednesday. The two complementary training workshops, Workstation Postures & Seating and Options for Reasonable Adjustments, combine lots of practical advice with hands-on product experience. For those attending both training sessions, lunch is also provided. DSE assessors, occupational health, health & safety and disability assessment personnel will all benefit from this programme
Our next one day DSE Assessor training is scheduled in Exeter on July 17th. Due to some last minute cancellations, we still have places so please follow this link if you want to attend this double-accredited (IIRSM and CIEHF) session. We have also been asked to organise a course local to us in Dorset and we need a few more delegates to reach critical mass. If this is of interest, please contact our Training Manager about possible dates.
OK, an admission: here is some social media that I have not yet fully mastered! I am trying to get past my perception that Instagram is just a bunch of selfies so we have set up our own company account. I am assured it will give us a great platform to post products, activities and what is happening in the business. We have only just loaded the first few images but we would love you to follow us if you’re an Instagram user – and watch us learn! Find us here.
Demand for our Motus sit-stand desks continues to grow. A recent project required all-white product so we are now stocking the Motus 3000 range with both silver and white frames. With a choice of seven standard top colours and seven sizes, this is a quality product at a competitive price for almost every application. With a four-memory controller as standard and a full range of associated cable management, monitor arm and CPU holder products, this offers an outstanding value product, whether it is for a home setup or a whole commercial office.
