Vehicle and driver ergonomic assessment course

'enricoSmog practitioners ran an in-house course for us for which I have received very good feedback from the OH advisors who attended and from the clients who have been assessed since. Well done!'
Occupational Health manager, OH Provider

'I'd been looking for a course like this for ages, as we have loads of drivers out on the roads, and we want to keep them safe, and so knowing how to carry out this type of assessment will help greatly' 
Health, safety and well-being manager, National Distributor


Preliminary requirement
All course delegates will be asked to do a simple assessment of his or her vehicle.

Who should attend?
This course is designed for staff that would like to be able to carry out vehicle assessments for drivers who report discomfort or pain.

As an assessor you will learn how to?

  • Assess the person and the vehicle
  • Identify key risk factors
  • Carry out a systematic assessment using our body map and risk assessment checklist
  • Determine if the vehicle matches the job- driver demands

To achieve the objectives the training course is designed to be as practical as possible, and to stimulate and encourage proactive behaviour and discussion throughout the day.
