Ergonomic assessments identify risk factors for injury due to repetitive movements, strong forces, awkward postures, static sitting and other potential risk factors impacting the worker. The assessment evaluates the best ways to fit a given job to the worker.
It can be conducted with workers who have had a specific injury or ailment to promote optimal workplace health, job satisfaction and performance or as a preventative measure to reduce the risk factors that may lead to decreased performance and work loss.
The assessment includes details such as
- Design of workstations, work process as well as tools and equipment specific to the worker
- Risk factors that may have been unidentified
- Education on how to modify the physical workspace and adaptive strategies for the worker to manage the symptoms at work
- Information and recommendations for both the employee and employer at the time of the assessment and in a formal written report (if requested)
