Osmond Ergonomics eBulletin April 2023

This article was originally emailed as issue 161 of our monthly eBulletin at 11:30 on 12/04/2023. You can register here to receive them monthly.



As you probably already know, April is Stress Awareness Month. What you may not realise is that this has been the case for over 30 years. I am delighted to see that stress and its successful management is finally getting the attention and support it deserves. In recognition of this (and Mental Health Awareness Week on May 15-21), we shall be offering a free 3-part webinar series, starting on April 19th. This is also our first Guest Speaker Series, featuring Robert Manson. Robert has extensive experience from senior roles at RWE, Morrisons and GlaxoSmithKline and now runs his own consultancy, Haldane Health. Find out more about our free webinars and register here.


CDW_2023London’s Clerkenwell is home to more creative businesses and architects per square mile than anywhere else on the planet. ‘The UK’s leading independent design festival’, CDW returns on May 23-25 this year. Amongst the numerous events and presentations taking place, the key manufacturers in the UK workplace design and furniture industry throw open their showrooms to display their latest products. I shall be speaking at 11:30 on Wednesday May 24 at the new Dynamobel showroom (so new that it hasn’t even opened yet!). Look out for full details in the May eBulletin.


Creative,Wow,Word,Cut,From,Paper,Isolated,On,White,BackgroundWhilst many of our competitors add anything and everything to their portfolio, we are much more selective. Even products from existing manufacturing partners have to go through our WoW Factor process to make it into our range and onto our website. As you might expect, we reject more than we accept! Since the start of 2023, we have declined 60% of the new designs we have assessed. To stay abreast of our recommendations, many clients subscribe to our Product Radar newsletters. Unlike this eBulletin, Product Radar emails are published ad hoc and only when we have a worthy new contender to show you. See our recent additions and/or register here.


Wireless,Keyboard,And,Camera,With,The,Word,On,Demand,WebinarsAll our live webinars are recorded and added to our website. A link is then emailed to all registered delegates for access to the video recording after the event. It is, therefore, always worth registering for any topic that interests you, even if the timing conflicts with other diary commitments. That way, you can catch up in your own time at some stage in the future. You can see our archive of View on Demand recordings here. They are all free but you will need to register for access.


DisconnectedFrom Monday April 17th, our switchboard hours will change to 09:00 – 17:00 Monday to Friday. This is an industry norm and, since other electronic communication methods have now eclipsed the telephone, the volume of calls has diminished significantly over the years and especially since the pandemic. This slight restriction of core telephone hours also allows us to give the Customer Service team greater flexibility over start and finish times so you may well find that you get email responses outside these hours.
