ABOUT US

Welcome to Workspace Health

Workspace Health are Specialists in DSE risk asessments and ergonomic office furniture suppliers.

We are unique in our sector as the origins of Workspace Health come from an occupational health business, and this gives us a fundamentally different perspective on why we exist, how we think and how we operate.
The centre of our Ergonomic Assessments is you, the person. There is now very strong scientific evidence stating that sedentary behaviours in the workplace are not only unhealthy to the body and mind, but also leads to poor productivity.
With objective evidence-based reporting we are leading the way in the provision of DSE Compliance and Office Ergonomics, by focusing on the person rather than the equipment.

Our mission is to educate office workers in healthy and productive working cultures to improve their well-being, by delivering DSE risk assessments that go to the heart of the individual’s problem.

Along with advice and assistance on Active Working, we are focused on:

Managing Director

Stuart is a Registered Occupational Health Chartered Physiotherapist with 25-years experience in Ergonomics and Active Working Strategies.

A personal journey.
I set up Workspace Health in 2016 when I became increasingly disillusioned with the approach taken by the office ergonomics industry, which I found was too furniture sales focused rather than it being focused on resolving the workers real issues. So, with my usual “don’t complain if you are not prepared to get up and do something about it” attitude, we set up Workspace Health with the ambition of moving the Display Screen Equipment (DSE) assessment marketplace from a furniture sales model to a model of delivery where evidenced based medical best practice dictated the recommendations at the end of an assessment.
Using our successful occupational health business as a foundation and with the amazing support of my wife and co-director Michaela, we have since 2016 developed Workspace Health into a market leading business that delivers DSE risk assessment services and office ergonomic equipment across the whole of the UK.
We could not have done this journey without the support of an initially sceptical group of equipment manufacturers who have now embraced our concept and are now working with us, and we are proud to be main dealers for their products.
I would like to thank all our suppliers for their faith in us, our customers for their loyalty and most importantly our amazing staff for all their dedication and hard work.

Quality and Governance

Workspace Health’s parent company Sun Rehabilitation is a long established SEQOHS registered musculo-skeletal occupational health provider.

It should be no surprise that all the secure systems and processes and checks that we use in the occupational health industry are employed in Workspace health.
We handle even a simple Display Screen Equipment form with the same duty of care as a sensitive medical report.
None of our staff work on commissions or sales bonus schemes, as we believe this can lead to a temptation to “over sell” a product.
A detailed risk based report is generated from our assessments, so that you know what a high priority recommendation is and where you need to focus resources.
100% of our reports and recommendations are peer reviewed to ensure for quality and consistency, so that you can have complete peace of mind that the recommendations we make are the best possible outcome.
We like to work with our customers to understand their culture and needs for our work. We are happy to produce a specific equipment list which is tailored to our customers needs and budget.
Written consent is electronically gained from the employee not only to release the report to their employers but also to retain their data in accordance to UK GDPR regulations.
