Announcing an exciting seminar at the impressive Steelcase Canada Facility in Downtown Toronto this December.
Join Kathy Smythe of Steelcase Canada and Jane Sleeth of Optimal Performance this December for a Seminar on new topics related to Ergonomics.
Jane, Sr Ergonomic & Accessibility Consultant with OPC Inc will present about “Ergonomics is about more than Posture & a Chair: Stand Up at Work, Sit Like a Man, & Walking Shoes are for lunch” Jane will describe how the science of ergonomics extends beyond the usual idea that it is just about a good chair and improved postures. Jane will outline the scientific evidence for 3 changes in employee work behaviours and their impact on human physical and mental health.
Kathy Smythe of Steelcase Canada will present about the Steelcase topic of wellbeing in the workplace; “Wellbeing and the Importance of Movement: How to Design Healthy & Active offices”
Steelcase statistics & OPC Inc assessment data collected over the last 24 years of practice in Canada find an increasing number of employees spend more time in a seated & static posture when their offices are designed in a certain way. It is
clear that design can impact how, when & how effectively employees will move more dynamically in the office. This leads to employees undertaking more healthy approaches to work to truly meet the outcome associated with employee Wellbeing.
Sign up with Steelcase or with Carla Mardonet at OPC for Thursday December 4th in the morning at INFO@optimalperformance.ca or 416 860-0002.
We look forward to seeing you there for this important dual talk by two top experts in this field.
