Office Ergonomic Assessments

All PROergonomics Office Ergonomic Services have been specifically designed to ensure our clients are in compliance with the current CSA Z412 Standard: Office ergonomics - An application standard for workplace ergonomics.

Office Ergonomic Assessments

An Office Ergonomic Assessment is done one-on-one with an employee to ensure they are setup correctly at their computer workstation to minimize or prevent discomfort.

The Ergonomic Consultant and the employee work together to achieve the optimal setup by discussing existing concerns, employee discomfort levels and workstation usage needs. The employee receives one-on-one education about the optimal way to set-up their computer workstation in accordance with the CSA Office Ergonomic Standard (Z412-17) including opportunities for increased movement in the work day.

A full report is provided to the client following the assessment which identifies all adjustments made while onsite, detailed recommendations for any further equipment or accessories that may be needed and a summary of work method suggestions communicated to the employee.
