Everyday life at work often lacks compensatory exercises in general and involves repetitive activities which asymmetrically strain the body. However, it is possible to prevent common symptoms by applying suitable measures. Experienced ergonomics specialists will analyse the workplaces at the company and advise employees on how to develop healthier habits. The ergonomics advice is suitable for office and production sites, and we will put together customised programmes that reflect the needs of the company and industry.
On-site workplace analysis helps employees with restricted capacity for work due to an illness or accident. The focus is not only on the prerequisites and habits of employees but also on the conditions at the workplace with a view to jointly finding solutions. The analysis makes it possible to objectively compare the individual's physical capabilities with the requirements that must be met to perform a particular job. The aim is to enable the individual to continue to work as before while also reducing the costs from absences.
In 2021, many employees were part of the home-working boom as they switched from working in an office to working from home – with little or no warning. But how should companies deal with this issue after the pandemic? Although working from home has a positive impact on productivity, satisfaction and life balance, it also harbours some risks – especially in terms of team development and employee isolation. SWICA provides advice on issues relating to working from home and offers a variety of webinars, workshops and presentations for boosting health awareness among employees working from home.
Thanks to its wide range of prevention management services, SWICA is able to meet the individual needs of its corporate clients in the area of home working. In addition to holistic consultation services (including analysis), there are individual measures relating to specific topics. These are delivered as presentations, workshops or webinars which are geared to the needs of managers and/or staff working from home.
SWICA offers its customers various employee surveys that focus on work aspects such as development opportunities, workplace equipment, health promotion, leadership, cooperation with other departments, and internal communication. Companies then receive an analysis of the results, including recommendations for taking action in occupational health management.

By doing a health check, employees learn about their current health profile to raise awareness and encourage them to identify risk factors and choose a healthy lifestyle – at work and elsewhere. Based on the test results, employees receive information and recommendations during a personal consultation on how to enhance or maintain their health. The focus and scope of the health check-up may vary, depending on the company's needs. The subsequent optional health report highlights the health risks for the company so that it can develop further OHM measures.
