Green Star Ergonomics Credit

The Green Star Ergonomics Credit for Office Interiors is designed to recognise the provision of equipment and spaces that provide optimum levels of comfort to users and that avoid stress and injury. Fit-outs and projects may be awarded this credit when they take ergonomics and comfort into consideration when designing or selecting furniture and other items.

Available in Brisbane, on the Sunshine Coast and the Gold Coast with Viva Health at Work. To get started call us on 07 3040 7128 or contact us from our website

Viva Consultants have worked with private and government organisations for the provision of extensive office ergonomic screening, assessment, early intervention, and training. We have worked with interior design and architectural firms for the planning and implementation of office fit-outs, including research of relevant standards and best practice, equipment procurement, staff needs assessment, and training.

We engage workers in collaborative work analysis with application of human factors engineering and participatory ergonomics to conduct risk-based task analysis, review potential unwanted events and consider strategies for optimum performance, productivity, health, and safety.

To help workplaces achieve Green Star Ergonomics Credit for Office Interiors and remain compliant with Work Health Safety Act 2011, the Queensland Hazardous Manual Tasks Code of Practice 2011 and the Queensland How to Manage Work Health and Safety Risks Code of Practice 2011, we may review work practice with consideration of applicable design standards. These standards provide recommendations for office furnishings, workstation, storage, space in interior design, input devices and accessories.

The Green Star Ergonomics Credit for Office Interiors is designed to recognise the provision of equipment and spaces that provide optimum levels of comfort to users and that avoid stress and injury. Fit-outs and projects may be awarded this credit when they take ergonomics and comfort into consideration when designing or selecting furniture and other items.

Through our services we engage, investigate, consult, and make recommendations with workers. These may include recommendations consistent with “best practice” strategies to take into account the changing work practices and technological advancement – such as work from home or mobile work stations (mobile devices and community outreach activity, for example) – not yet fully captured with current design standards.
