About Pinnacle Performance: Strategies for the Office Environment?

Pinnacle Performance: Strategies for the Office Environment is a software program designed to reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries for office based employees. It allows workers to self-manage their office environment by following relevant and easy-to-read advice on workplace ergonomics and manual handling.

  • General Information on anatomy, exercises and ergonomic workstation layout. Step-by-step instructions to demonstrate correct manual handling techniques (for example: using compactus, handling archive boxes, loading vehicles) are also available.
  • Targeted Advice where workers can use an interactive Pain Chart to select the area they experience aches and pains and receive relevant self-management and workstation ergonomics strategies to help them alleviate their symptoms (Note: this software DOES NOT take the place of medical advice from a Doctor, Physiotherapist or Health Professional).
