At Duergo Conslt, we believe good health is requisite for staff productivity and requires the combined effort of all stakeholders. We are ergonomics specialists with an astute knowledge in work place research and design, using human science to match jobs to workers, systems, products to the environment, with the aim to improve the physical and mental disposition of people. We therefore engage management staff to lead a healthy

lifestyle strategy at work, facilitating the transmission of knowledge down the chain,  providing up-to-date knowledge needed to prevent work related illnesses through adequate planning, training, monitoring and evaluation. These therefore lead to improved worker efficiency, staff performance and productivity by making tasks easier, safer, comfortable and highly rewarding. Our interventions are cost saving and tailored to meet the need of our clients and organisations.

Why should our services be of interest to your organisation?

  • Employee healthcare thrust is not sufficient; it places emphasis on cure rather than prevention
  • Office/ factory workers are exposed to increasing risk of sickness or injuries due to lifestyle changes and poor work habit.
  • Providing real help to anyone suffering musculoskeletal disorders (Neck pain, back pain, shoulder pain, and wrist pain)/discomfort at work which are the most common reasons for reported work related illness and long term sick leave.
  • It is cheaper to prevent the occurrence of these illnesses than to cure them
  • It saves money by helping people stay at or return to work, reducing sickness absence

We train management and support staffs on good work posture and safe manual equipment handling, highlighting the dangers of poor posture and lifting techniques with more emphasis on how to carry out self-check and adjustments where possible, thereby  encouraging workers to be responsible for their own health and safety. This promotes staff sense of wellbeing and motivates them for increased productivity.

We carry out risk identification and evaluation covering the environment, work space and task demands to identify high out practices and then provide with a risk prevention template to combat the risks identified. This risk assessment and evaluation is centred at providing a safe working environment where workers can work comfortably and improved performance. We then provide a detailed report on findings and recommendations for a better workstation.

The task to be completed by an individual needs to be commensurate with the physical and mental capabilities of the person working within a safe environment. In achieving this, we look at how tasks are completed and factors that influence productivity with the aim of improving the physical work environment ensuring that workers work efficiently with comfort.

Through detailed assessment and analysis of work areas and tasks we then provide timely, efficient and effective recommendations simple enough to guide decision making process and implementation. This robust intervention covers staff training (Manual Handling), developing task allocation template, re-designing work space, and assessment of equipment/ gadget.
