Guided Stretch Sessions

Usually 15-minutes, these sessions are run via Zoom or Teams for up to 24 participants and are a perfect way to encourage that all-important break from sitting at a screen, and to reduce fatigue from sitting for long periods.

The stretches are also designed to:

  • Improve mobility and ease stiffness caused from sitting at a desk all day
  • Promote positive mental and physical well-being
  • Improve focus and productivity
  • Provide a dedicated ‘mindful’ break from work
  • Help employers comply with HSE DSE regulations
  • Counteract the effects of sitting at a computer

How does it work?

  • We send you an exclusive booking link for employees to book onto the session
  • Employees then receive the link to attend via Zoom (or Teams)
  • We give safety advice at the start of the session
  • We can include breathing exercises at the start to de-stress and focus
  • We’ll take you through each stretch – guiding you in a controlled manner and explaining adaptations where necessary

Virtual Display Screen Equipment (DSE) Services

We have adapted our on-site DSE Assessment services to enable us to provide DSE services virtually.

These can be tailored to your requirements and include:

  • Individual DSE Risk Assessments – workstation evaluation, actions and recommendations, with reporting in line with HSE guidelines
  • Group Interactive presentations on posture – educating employees on the importance of good posture, self-care and how to minimise risks
  • Company DSE Risk Assessment Audits – an overview of potential risks and a recommended plan of action for compliance

With the DSE User’s workstation adjusted to fit their needs and minimise risks, how do you, the employer, ensure that bad habits and poor posture don’t jeopardise this good work?

We devised our “Good Posture” presentation for this very reason!

Essential Vitality’s interactive presentation on good posture highlights the risks for DSE Users, especially with hybrid working and hot-desking.  The guidance helps employers comply with Health & Safety DSE Regulations by educating employees with an informative approach.

It covers the following

  • The detrimental effects of bad posture
  • Workstation set-up to achieve good posture
  • Practical tips on reducing the risks for DSE Users, and improving well-being
