Virtual Office Ergonomic Assessments

Our goal is to ensure our clients are in compliance with the current CSA Z412 Standard: Office ergonomics An application standard for workplace ergonomics.

To ensure objectivity, our virtual office ergonomic assessments include:

  1. Work and Discomfort Survey - requesting information from the employee related to their discomforts, hours of work and workstation layout challenges.
  2. Pictures - the employee will be asked to provide specific pictures of their workstation including angles and heights for the photos as this allows us to 'see' the MSD hazards present.
  3. 30-minute call (video or telephone) - occurs after all documentation has been received to review the findings, discuss recommended adjustments and generate any further equipment or work method recommendations.
  4. Summary report - a summary of the findings, including detailed recommendations with purchasing information, will be provided to the employer post-assessment.

Cognitive Demands Assessments (CDA)

To complete an objective Cognitive Demands Assessment remotely, our staff will complete the assessment using the following:

  1. Job Description - this is a key tool when completing all CDAs as it provides the most objective and detailed breakdown of the job and often includes percentages of time allotted for each duty
  2. Sample Work Products - if applicable, the Ergonomist will review sample work products that the employee would generate (e.g. reports, website content, marketing communication documents) to better understand the associated cognitive demands.
  3. Other documentation - as available, we would also review SOPs, work instructions, training records, and more and would consult with the employer to determine which would be beneficial
  4. 60-minute Interview - staff in the role will meet with the Ergonomist virtually to discuss the cognitive demands of the job and the connection of the cognitive demands to the essential duties of the position to aid in generating a detailed description of how often and to what level of complexity that demand is required.
