Cardinus (a THB Group plc member company) - providers of online injury reduction solutions and risk management within the safety, fleet and property sectors, have issued an exciting new edition of Workstation Safety Plus, their online ergonomics (DSE) training and risk solution, that includes brand new content for new and expectant mothers.
The risks associated with pregnancy at work are well known. As the body changes shape it becomes increasingly difficult to comply with best practice requirements. The affect can be increased pressure caused by sitting poorly and not supporting the body properly. Hormonal changes can add to this vulnerability so extra care is needed to protect the tendons and other soft tissues in the shoulders, elbows and wrists.
The new content provided by Workstation Safety Plus is particularly engaging and easy-to-use. Having been through an expert review by Health & Safety Laboratories the content is appropriate and accurate way of ensuring your pregnant employees remain safe at work.
Barbara Snape, Cardinus Operations Director said, "Workstation Safety Plus has been at the forefront of good ergonomics and DSE management for a number of years. The safety challenges associated with pregnancy are complex so we are especially excited about the solution we can now offer. New and expectant mothers will now be supported throughout each trimester and empowered to manage their risk effectively"
