Tips for your business

  • Promote safety

    Find out which specifications and requirements apply to your business in terms of occupational safety. Your sector-specific association, the cantonal body responsible for workplace inspections or Suva will be happy to provide you with information. These organisations will also have numerous offers and resources to hand to support you.
  • Ergonomic workstations in five minutes

    The ergonomics for most office workstations can be improved in just a few minutes and at no cost. This primarily revolves around ensuring that office chairs are properly adjusted and that screens and desks are set at the correct height.
  • Create space and light

    Space to move around, light, air conditioning and little noise are the main factors that characterise a pleasant workplace. Check whether there are measures that you can implement: simple steps are often all it takes to improve the overall situation. A bit more space between desks, soundproofing between workstations or the option to adjust the lighting for individual workstations.
  • Leave room for the personal touch

    We spend a lot of time at our workstation. Its design has a big impact on employee motivation and performance. It pays off to give employees a say in terms of both the set-up and any purchases made. There is room for the personal touch too.
  • Create places staff can retreat to

    Having separate rooms for important and discreet discussions, work that requires concentration or phone calls is a simple way of ensuring a certain level of privacy in the workplace. You can also meet this need with some careful positioning of furniture.
  • Think about ergonomics and safety in vehicles

    Make employees aware of how to make the right adjustments in terms of headrests and posture when sitting in vehicles. Good driving promotes safety: this includes driving at suitable speeds, concentration, taking sufficient breaks and, of course, complying with rules on working hours and rest periods.
