Do you work from home? Have you considered a Homeworker Risk Assessment?

Do you work from home?  Have you considered a Homeworker Risk Assessment?

We live in a day and age where more and more people are working from home.  Whether this is full time, part time or just the occasional day.  It’s a fact that thousands of people work from home.

If you use a laptop or computer for your home working, you may find that you suffer from aches and pains which are common symptoms of sitting, or slouching, with bad posture.  Especially if you use the device on your lap or at the dining room table.  A lack of good, basic equipment and knowledge are major contributory features in this

Common symptoms of bad posture include aches and pains in the back, shoulders, head and neck.  All of which can help be alleviated by having a Homeworker Risk Assessment.

Environmental Handling Systems (EHS) has been providing these and Health & Safety courses to many business over the years.  The company specialise in Risk Assessment and the provision of professional training solutions to avoid unnecessary injuries at work.

One area of assessment that is often overlooked is those employees who work from home.  Whether you’re employed by a business or self-employed, you may find your company has a legal and moral responsibility to ensure you are fully aware of how incorrect ergonomics can lead to work related injuries.

On behalf of your company, EHS can visit the home of your employees and fully assess your work station or office. This will help provide your employees with sound advice and best practice guidelines to avoid bad posture.  The company travels all over the UK to provide Homeworker Risk Assessments and all assessors carry ID and are fully Disclosure checked for added peace of mind.  Furthermore their prices are extremely cost effective, especially when measured against litigious claims that may arise.

We run a variety of Health and Safety courses but are specialists in evacuation Chair training and sales.

I am now in the fortunate position of having 12 years worth of experience and connections in the industry, with many colleagues and contacts spread across the globe, in both distribution and sales colleagues, as well as customers who are keen to do business with me.

My drive and passion for this industry is second to none and I can already see some very big achievable goals in sight.  There’s no doubt in my mind that I will be taking Evaccess to the next level as I did with my previous Company.”

Where Can You Get the Best Value, Expert Evacuation Chair Training?

Where Can You Get the Best Value, Expert Evacuation Chair Training?

UK based company EH Systems, who specialise in all areas of business strategy, has today announced today that it is currently offering a price match, or better, for like-for-like Evacuation Chair training courses.

The company offers a wide range of B2B services, from start-ups through to very well established businesses and repeat customers.  With many years of experience of taking a product from the initial concept, through the development process and onto marketing and global sales; with various staff training courses being just one of its many areas of expertise.

Managing Director, Paul Mitchell said “EHS was one of the first companies to offer Evacuation Chair training courses, having been in operation since 2004.  Personally I have been responsible for the development, manufacture and distribution of a wide range of evacuation equipment, including tracked stair chairs, patient transit chairs and rescue-sheets, which have all gone on to sell in their thousands all over the world.  So when it comes to training people how to use the equipment, what is considered best practise and what to avoid and to advise of current legislation, I have a solid history and a wealth of experience from the bottom up”.

Evacuation chair training is just one of the many services the company has to offer.  They also have a range of services available for home workers and businesses, from Health & Safety related assessments and training, to innovation, development and strategy; EHS can also streamline your business and assist growth that will take you to the next level and achieve your goals and dreams.

Paul Mitchell made a very valid point “It’s all well and good purchasing an Evacuation Chair, but what happens if it comes to an emergency situation and nobody knows how to use it?  Basically it’s either rendered useless or someone has to take on board a very risky responsibility at the drop of a hat.  Once the equipment has been purchased, it’s essential that responsible members of staff are professionally trained, and well equipped, to correctly use the equipment in line with best practise guidelines.  All businesses and organisations have a legal obligation to provide an equal chance of a safe escape for any staff or visitors who suffer from limited mobility.  This is what evacuation chairs are designed for and although we are able to sell the equipment to companies, we are currently focussing on training courses to offer peace of mind to those responsible for the safety of their staff and visitors”.

More information about the training courses the company offers, as well as their wide range of business assistance services, please visit www.ehsystems.co.uk or send an email to info@ehsystems.co.uk.
