Ergonomic Assessment

The purpose of an Ergonomic Assessment is to examine the “fit” between the worker and the job requirements/environment.  An ergonomic study takes place at the worksite and evaluates the worker’s size, strength, and ability to handle the tasks, tools, and overall environment. 

 

Information gathered through an ergonomic study is used to evaluate the risks of the job and possible hazardous posturing/equipment use that may lead to the development of cumulative trauma disorders. 

 

During the ergonomic study, workers are provided with education about stretching, body mechanics, and appropriate use of their environment and simple, quick modifications to the workspace may be made to immediately improve their well-being. 

 

At the completion of the ergonomic assessment a report will be provided to the employer detailing the concerns discussed with the employee and any recommended modifications in job tasks, equipment, or worker factors to decrease risk, increases safety, and increase productivity.
