The Safety Elf

You need The Ergo Elf!

We're passionate about posture - by equipping our clients with understanding of the principles of good posture and movement they can then apply them wherever they are, whatever they are doing.

We all spend many hours interacting with our technology – from the laptop and smart phone to enjoying gaming and TV, but we rarely stop to think about the negative impacts of our improvised postures, unhelpful chairs and workstation set-up until something starts to hurt.

 
 

How we can help you:

  • We offer detailed individual assessments looking at the physical interaction with the technology (all your gadgets!) and workstation (be it a desk, kitchen table or sofa), not forgetting the behaviour patterns around usage for work / leisure and the software and hardware being used - for individuals, families and businesses.
  • Did you know that Display Screen Equipment (DSE) is now the commonest kind of work equipment? We also offer DSE Users and Assessors training and management advice to ensure that your business meets the responsibilities under the legislation and provides a suitable working environment.

Whatever the size of your business, give the The Safety Elf a call if you have any concerns about health, safety and wellbeing. We can arrange a 30 minute phone consultation - it’s free and with no obligation.

Thank you so much for your time recently. The difference the process has made is that I get less backache and I feel “supported” - not just physically, but also mentally, from you! Your approach is professional and effective, yet gentle and fun! You reminded me of things I knew, but wasn’t implementing and told me new things that absolutely amazed me. I am thrilled to be typing this sitting at my desk in true comfort - I am able to work for longer overall and my concentration is better because of your help!

Alison, The Safety Elf, came in to do a health and safety compliance audit, helped us with the paperwork we dreaded and delivered the training to the staff group to up-skill them on current best practise and meet registration requirements – Manual Handling, Infection Control, Lone Working and First Aid to name but a few! She even saved us money on unnecessary Portable Appliance Testing (PAT).
