Discomfort Pain and Injury (DPI): a preventative measure which teaches staff about the seven contributing factors that are at play when there is an experience of pain, discomfort or injury.  It encourages individuals to consider the various factors and take responsibility for those which are within their control.   Visit the  habitatwork website for more information about this model. 
OOS Prevention: although the term is now outdated the problem still persists.  Covers topics such as; what is OOS/RSI/GPI, symptoms and conditions which are collectively called OOS, useful exercises, ACC’s DPI model, concept of total load, good workspace setup and positioning, micropausing and breaks.

Standing to Work Successfully: discusses how to use various sit/stand desk options to stand more (tailored for each organisation to reflect the equipment available).  For many people that have worked seated for years the transition to working standing up can be a process and education can increase the likelihood of a successful change.

Rebalance your Life: aims to provide attendees with an understanding of what they are spending their time on – things that uplift and energise them or things that detract from their sense of enjoyment in life.  Using the ReDo model and some practical fun exercises participants come away with knowledge about what areas they can improve on to bring a sense of balance back into life…and we know that people who feel they have more work/life balance work more productively.
