What you get with your Ergonomic Assessment
We strive to ensure that each ergonomic assessment is tailored to our client’s needs. Typically an assessment consists of a 1.5 hour appointment per workstation and includes a detailed report which is delivered after the session. For sessions of 6+ workstations we offer an hourly rate with or without reporting.
Included in our Comprehensive Ergonomic Assessments for a worker is:
A detailed investigation of work demands, equipment used, medical history, or problem areas for worker at their work station
Observation of the worker performing work tasks to determine areas needing improvement
Ergonomic adjustment of workstation to make it as efficient as possible
Detailed report on assessment with recommendations for additional equipment needed to better accommodate worker at their work station
