I’ll be able to evaluate an employees current configuration and provide some suggestions to make their workspace more efficient and ergonomic. Goal was to provide a comfortable work environment while reducing risks. By attending this workshop, I am better equipped to handle general inquiries or requests for special equipment or desk changes. For medical issues, I would still involve the professionals - HWE.
