Ergonomic Assessment

Ergonomic assessments, also referred to as workstation or workplace assessments, ensure that your workstation is ergonomically designed to minimize the risk of injury and maximize productivity.

You do not need to have an illness or injury in order to consider the ergonomics of your environment. Ones of the goals of an ergonomic assessment is to set up one’s workstation in such a way that it lessens your risk of back pain, neck pain, headaches, eye strain, and even bursitis or tendon problems (carpal tunnel) that are often linked to doing the same tasks over and over again.

Assessments are also conducted to support the return to work of an injured employee by ensuring that their workstation is designed to minimize any discomfort as they recover from their injury and prevent any aggravation of the injury.

Ergonomic assessments are designed to ensure correct workstation set-up.  Where an individual is already experiencing pain or discomfort, a thorough assessment is conducted to ensure you can work safely and comfortably.

All assessments are completed on-site and will cover:

  • Posture

  • Physical and muscular work demands
  • Equipment and workplace design
