An Office Ergonomic Assessment is a review of your office work area environment. In recent years, office ergonomic injuries have been growing due to the rapid increase in computer/ keyboard use. We can reduce the risk of injury by adapting the work to fit the employee instead of forcing the employee to adjust to the work area. We will evaluate each work station in relationship to body mechanics, anthropometric measurements and current ergonomic equipment. We will provide specific recommendations for change to work areas. We may also suggest some ergonomic tools that can help prevent further discomfort or harm. In addition to injury prevention, a well designed work station can enhance work performance by removing the barriers that prevent employees from performing to the best of their ability.
- Reduce the potential of ergonomic injury.
- Protect your valued employees.
