Our Clinical Ergonomics Team helps ensure our colleagues work as safely as possible and that there are plans in place which incorporate risk reduction and good practice.

The team is home to a number of qualified healthcare professionals who have developed their skillsets for the benefit of staff and managers throughout #GatesheadHealth. Their work is primarily in assessing risks to both staff and services from the ways in which we carry out our work, and providing subsequent advice to limit and nullify risk.

The ultimate aim of the Clinical Ergonomics Team’s work is to prevent physical injury and prevent any of the factors which may affect quality of performance in relation to work activity. To learn more about some of the ways the team can help you do this, read on below.
