Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomic assessments are the cornerstone of MSD injury prevention

Assessments we provide

Understanding your hazards and risk level is critical in the development of a strategic action plan

Knowing the ergonomic injury potential for the tasks performed at your workplace is an essential step towards protecting the health and well-being of staff, improving productivity, and increasing efficiency in your work processes.

Develop a robust ergonomics program by having a subject matter expert onsite weekly, biweekly or monthly to support ongoing ergonomic initiatives in the workplace. This flexible service can be “what you need it, when you need it”. From policy and program development, to supporting Ergonomic Committee or JHSC actions, a regular onsite presence ensures your program is always moving forwards.

Improve workstation set-up and increase comfort for staff in the office or those working remotely by optimizing their office ergonomic set-up. From adjusting working heights and chair features to suggesting ergonomic layout improvements, equipment, and incorporating movement breaks, we offer personalized strategies to enhance employee comfort and prevent musculoskeletal injuries.

Effective and safe return to work begins with knowing the physical and cognitive requirements of job tasks. Physical and cognitive demands assessments are objective, quantitative summaries of the essential duties within a role so that job match and accommodation requirements can be clearly determined.

Objectively evaluate MSD workplace hazards such as force, posture, and repetition to determine injury risk, we well as develop practical solutions to optimize the work environment, processes, tools, and equipment to mitigate injury risk, improve workflow, and support the health and well-being of staff.

Evaluate the proposed design of a new workstation, assembly line, tool, or piece of equipment to proactively identify potential MSD hazards before implementation. By integrating ergonomics into the design phase, potential hazards can be identified and ‘designed out’ before ever reaching the workplace, saving you time and money.

Achieve successful and early RTW by aligning the employee’s abilities with job or task requirements. By comparing the employee’s documented functional abilities to the essential duties of a job or task, suitable work can be identified, and accommodations provided, to assist with safe and early return to work for injured employees.

Take the next step towards a safer, healthier, and more ergonomic workplace
