How does Workability Solutions differ from the government’s Fit for Work service?
- You can refer to us at any time, not just after the employee has been off for 4+ weeks;
- Face to face consultations are available;
- Workplace assessments to look at the ergonomic* factors;
- Health risk assessment, e.g. stress, first aid, musculo-skeletal, neurodiversity†;
- You can find the government’s Fit for Work guidance here
* The design and arrangement of things people use, so that the people and things interact most efficiently and safely – also called biotechnology, human engineering, human factors.
† Short for neurological diversity, this refers to the diversity of human brains and minds, e.g. autism spectrum disorders; and to the idea that this is a natural, valuable form of diversity.
