Ergonomic Risk Assessment

Prioritize workplace improvements with objective data

Understanding the risks

Identifying hazards and evaluating risk

An Ergonomic Risk Assessment is a systematic analysis of the MSD hazards that are identified in a job/task and determines the level of injury risk associated with a worker developing a musculoskeletal disorder (MSDs).

Understanding the risks present in a job perfectly aligns with health and safety legislation. All organizations have a responsibility to identify hazards and address areas of concern as part of ongoing safety initiatives – and ergonomic hazards are no different! An ergonomic assessment fulfills all these requirements: identifies hazards, assesses risk, and also provides prioritized recommendations for an organization’s next steps in preventing injuries.

Why it's important

Prioritizing opportunities for ergonomic improvement

Ergonomic Risk Assessments can be used both reactively (post-injury) or proactively (pre-injury) and are an essential component of a comprehensive MSD prevention program. By assessing risk, you can prioritize areas that require ergonomic intervention, ensuring that resources are being well-spent, and you see a quick return on your investment.
