In 2020 during lock-down, Grant created an online Home and Office Workstation Self-Assessment Training film. Using the film, people train themselves to correctly set up their home and office workstations and then complete a short questionnaire to demonstrate that knowledge. It is suitable for use by employees in the Channel Islands and anywhere around the world. Company branding can be added and the employer’s own office equipment can be demonstrated. Additionally health and safety messages that are specific to the company, location or individual buildings can easily be incorporated.

As well as workstation assessments, we provide other ergonomic office products including: Sit-stand solutions, Ergonomic chairs, Ergonomic mice and keyboards.
