Ergonomic Assessments

Equip your Team for Efficiency

Whether you know it or not, we’ve all likely been the victim of poor ergonomics. Back pain after sitting in an uncomfortable chair, tired eyes after doing detailed tasks on a computer screen or a sore shoulder from a repetitive activity. These are all risks that can be eliminated or controlled with an ergonomic assessment.

Ergonomics is the process of designing or arranging workplaces, products and systems so that they fit the people who use them. Put simply, our ergonomic assessments make sure that your products and processes allow your employees to function at their best with minimal risk of injury.

As each workplace and employee is unique, our ergonomic assessments are tailored to the individual. Things like height, weight, limb length, and visual acuity all impact the ergonomic adjustments that an employee may require.

To mitigate the risk of workplace injury, we assess the following:

  • Lighting
  • Working postures
  • Duration of tasks being performed
  • Lifting & carrying weights
  • Repetitive activities
  • Noise exposure
  • Temperature exposure
  • Workstation heights, widths, and depth
  • Grip strength
  • Concentration requirements

It may seem trivial, but never underestimate the importance of proper ergonomics in the workplace. With simple changes to processes or equipment, you can keep your employees happy and healthy for years to come.
