About LCE

LCE provide workplace safety, training and ergonomics consultancy services to clients in all industrial and commercial sectors throughout Ireland, the UK and Europe.

Being able to provide both technical and practical safety consultancy is what sets LCE apart – we work in partnership with our clients to provide solutions and systems that suit each organisations, from the self-employed to the multinational.

The phenomenal success of LCE can be attributed to the LCE approach to clients – the LCE mission statement is “to exceed customer expectations and redefine the perception of consultancy services”, and the commitment to this is demonstrated by the level of positive client feedback, client referrals and most importantly, by clients continually returning to LCE for additional consultancy and training.

When you work with LCE:
LCE consultants and trainers are a dedicated group of professionals who are experts in their field and whose focus is to ensure they always add value to an organisation.

Workplace Ergonomics
Ergonomics is a science-based discipline that brings together knowledge from other subjects such as anatomy and physiology, psychology, engineering and statistics to ensure that designs complement the strengths and abilities of the human body.

Rather than expecting people to adapt to a design that forces them to work in an uncomfortable, stressful or dangerous way, ergonomists seek to understand how a product, workplace or system can be designed to suit the people who need to use it.

How ergonomic interventions can help your business:
For over 25 years, Ita Leyden has been providing expert and practical ergonomic advice and consultancy. LCE can help your business to maximize human performance to:
  • Reduce accidents
  • Reduce potential for “human error”
  • Increase productivity
  • Improve quality
  • Reduce the risk of work related musculoskeletal disorders
Ergonomic services provided by LCE:
  • Workplace assessments
  • VDU Assessments
  • Control room design
  • Process design and assessment
Ergonomic accessories
Our consultant ergonomist has selected a limited range of ergonomic accessories which she believes are well designed and will optimise human performance and reduce the risk of musculoskeletal injuries.



LCE attended the annual Irish Ergonomics Society conference in Dublin on Thursday 6th June. The event was held in the lovely grounds of the Technical University Dublin, situated in Grangegorman Lower.
The conference was very well attended with in excess of 80 people on the day talking about “Human Factors & Ergonomics – Lessons to be learned across domains; healthcare, manufacturing and transport”
Presentations in relation to ergonomics in the workplace were plentiful with topics such as musculoskeletal disorders in bus drivers and gender differences of work-related upper limb disorders in health care workers being discussed.

Some other areas of interest in relation to ergonomic presentations included “A human factors approach to improve visual inspection for aircraft maintenance tasks” and “Task based risk assessment and monetised risk values for aviation maintenance activities: examples of evaluation for short cuts implications”. These were thought-provoking ways of looking at hazards in the workplace and how these companies addressed these issues by way of ergonomic risk assessments.

If ergonomics is under your remit, or you would like more information on ergonomic risk assessments then you can contact LCE on 051 364344 or email

In response to the announcement Ita Leyden said
“On behalf of LCE I would like to express our sincere thanks for the accreditation. Achieving All-Stars accreditation is a great source of pride for us and we look forward to continuing to meet and indeed exceed the standards set by the All-Star programme.

The opportunity to hear first-hand feedback from our Judge-Mentor, our existing customers, partners and suppliers through the reference module combined with the results from the mystery shopper round was invaluable.
We would like to thank the All-Star Summit for listening to our story, understanding and accrediting our business and above all helping us to promote LCE”
