The display screen equipment (DSE) software from Efficiency Software complements Cardinus’ own DSE training and risk assessment solution to further benefit the risk management company’s extensive customer base.
Efficiency Software’s solutions AltMOUSE, CtrlWORK and SitStandCOACH all offer the dual benefit of reducing the risk of workstation discomfort while increasing productivity by a minimum of 15 minutes per employee each day.
AltMOUSE tracks an individual’s mouse behaviour and suggests time-saving alternative keyboard shortcuts for the tasks that the employee carries out most often. Because 60 per cent of computer time is spent using the mouse, learning keyboard shortcuts has a big impact on efficiency. Keyboard shortcuts are on average 30 per cent faster than completing the same task with a mouse. AltMOUSE offers unique on the job training: learning while performing the regular working routine.
CtrlWORK reminds employees to take pit-stops from intense computer usage using friendly, user-tailored reminders and by providing feedback on working habits. Taking regular breaks before tiredness and fatigue set in results in higher levels of concentration and fewer mistakes being made. Taking breaks from intense computer work is a key requirement of the Health and Safety Executive’s DSE regulations.
SitStandCOACH encourages alternate sitting and standing behaviour using reminders that will even change the sit/stand desk height via the software, when used in conjunction with a compatible workstation. Regularly changing working posture from sitting to standing, when done correctly, improves wellbeing, reduces the risk of discomfort and increases productivity.
Jon Abbott, director of Cardinus Risk Management, said, “I’m very excited about this exclusive arrangement we have reached with Efficiency Software. The fit with our own range of ergonomic solutions is perfect and we are pleased to be able to offer such high quality complementary products to our customers.
