Optimising how mobile devices are used for work

If you are looking to switch to mobile devices or make changes to encourage a more agile work style, we provide help to make that transition.

Musculoskeletal risk management

Many employers understand there are musculoskeletal risks linked to mobile working, but are unsure of how to manage it – for example deciding what management steps and risk control measures are reasonably practicable? What are employers' legal duties?

Our Mobile Working Risk Management System provides the support you need to manage the risks effectively.

Why focus on mobile working?

Mobile Working simply means any work activity carried out using mobile devices such as tablets, smartphones and laptops (with the exception of using a laptop at your usual desk if you have one). This is an area which has grown at an extraordinary rate over the last decade, and is still growing strongly. More people daily are using mobile devices as key or primary work tools. Our services help you deal with the significant ergonomics and psychological impact that can accompany these changes.

We help our clients to:

  • Identify the ergonomic and musculoskeletal health risks that your business is exposed to from mobile working and use of mobile devices
  • Inform employees about the risks from mobile device use, and what can be done about them
  • Identify and put in place reasonably practicable risk controls
  • Comply with Health and Safety legislation which is applicable to mobile working and mobile device use.
