Cardinus, a division of THB Group plc, has launched the latest version of their highly acclaimed online display screen equipment risk assessment and training solution - Workstation Safety Plus - the launch took place in front of an audience of major clients at THB's Head Office in London.
Workstation Safety Plus (WSP) has become the leading ergonomic risk management tool for office based firms in the UK, with FTSE 100 & 250 companies, public sector, government departments, and mid sized private firms benefiting from the unique solution. Indeed, WSP has been approved by the Health and Safety Laboratories as providing appropriate risk assessment and training provision to meet with current HSE legislation.
Commenting after the launch, Jon Abbott, Cardinus' newly appointed Managing Director stated "I am really excited about the new product as it delivers so much more functionality for our customers with new course material such as RULA, our accredited upper limb risk assessment tool, our ergo spot check for hot desk users and advanced workflow management capability to ensure HR and H&S managers can manage compliance in an easy to use manner"
Cardinus also introduced Nate Williams, Heath and Safety Manager for office ergonomics at Parsons Group, a California-based engineering group with 12,000 employees worldwide. Nate shared the Parsons experience of using WSP and was able to show clear financial benefits.
Nate explained "We implemented WSP in 2006 and have seen our office based injury and sickness reduce significantly. Injury costs are 75% lower and incidents 50% lower. At a time when Parsons has moved to a self insured workers compensation solution, WSP has delivered tangible financial benefits as well as improving moral within our workforce"
Jon Abbott added, "until we were acquired by THB we had not fully understood the insurance implications in terms of employers liability claims in the UK and workers compensation in the US. The financial benefits evidenced by Parsons can be gained by any office based employer and we hope that insurers give due credit to clients who implement our solution."
WSP was launched in 1995 and now has over 6 million users across 3,000 firms world-wide and sits alongside a range of health and safety and risk management services and solutions including working closely with THB's fleet risk management division, Active Risk Management (ARM).
