Health and Safety Assessments

It would be so beneficial for everyone in DQ if we had frequent health & safety assessments. Especially in the Customer Care office.  We spend long hours sitting down in front of a computer screen. For many of us, the chairs can get very uncomfortable causing back and muscle aches. The computer screens do not seem to be at a correct level and that can cause neck and shoulder pain and straining eyes.

It would be great to have better workstation layout and sufficient working space to prevent poor posture. 


I understand that a new office is in the plans for Customer Care but I do hope that assessments are also carried out to prevent posture injuries especially for those one that already suffer from pain and previous injuries.

    Hey Maisa, it's been agreed that Health & Safety assessments are very important. Managers of departments can arrange for this to happen so please do chat with Naomi or Stephen if you have any concerns or would like an assessment to take place. In the meantime, this has been taken into consideration with the room changes that are soon to take place. :) - Danika
