Ergonomics and Working From Home
For many of us COVID-19 has created a new opportunity to work from home which we haven't had access to previously. Due to the nature of the pandemic this happened very quickly in some worksites. This meant that in some cases the ergonomics side of Workplace Health and Safety took a back seat when it came to organising our home workstations. Whether you are working from home temporarily or have ongoing arrangements, your work space set up is very important to your health and safety. Join us for this half hour session and find out more about how you can ensure working from home is as safe as possible.

  • Tuesday, 23 June 2020, 12:00pm - 12:30pm
  • Tuesday, 30 June 2020, 6:00pm - 6:30pm


Mindfulness
The practice of mindfulness brings calm in the midst of turmoil and supports the natural flow of energy that helps you to become more peaceful and more productive in all areas of your life at any time.


The PSA offers guided lunchtime sessions to support building your mindfulness practice, to lead you away from a thought-dominated world into the world of flow.

Each session will include a ten minute introduction followed by a twenty minute guided meditation. 30 minutes total.
