Posture Group's online pregnant worker system automates the process of providing training and assessments and highlights the high priority issues that need to be dealt with to reduce the health and safety risks to any pregnant workers.

Following the completion of the assessments, access is provided to the online administration area and reports for each user. This provides designated line managers with a view of responses where risks may be present, with suggested action points in each case.

Posture Group's online pregnant worker training and assessment software has been developed by our team of 250+ ergonomics, physiotherapy and health and safety consultants who deliver in excess of 40,000 face to face pregnant worker assessments annually. Our consultant's have developed the online pregnant worker system to streamline what they do face to face and the system provides comprehensive training via a slideshow with a follow on detailed assessment questionnaire and report with the findings and recommendations on completion.

If necessary, Posture Group can provide a follow up high risk pain management service where one of our team of ergonomics, physiotherapy and health and safety consultants will visit your premises after the assessments are completed to assist you in managing any users where further action is required, or they have a pain condition, that cannot be easily managed from within the company.

More than 3,000 companies are using Posture Group's online health and safety risk management software systems to streamline and automate their assessment processes and cut the cost of providing assessments by up to 95%.

How the system works?

  1. Users are automatically emailed an introductory email with more information and login details.
  2. Users then log on to the pregnant worker system and view the training slideshow with advice and tips. This provides a visual guide to safe working procedures during pregnancy and other important considerations.
  3. Each user completes the online assessment questionnaire.
  4. Assessment data is automatically collated by the online system and displayed in an online report summary with details of further action required for each member of staff. Line managers can search for users by name.
  5. If Posture Group is required to assist with any post-assessment action a consultant returns to provide a follow-up service – for example users with chronic pain. This ensures costs are only incurred for one-to-one time with users that require it.
