Ergonomic Assessments

Comprehensive Office Ergonomic Assessment $395*

This comprehensive assessment is best suited for the client/ employee with complicated physical considerations. The work place is visited and assessed for ergonomic design and effectiveness considering the individual’s subjective reports of pain, discomfort, physical limitations and previous diagnosis. Ergonomic and human factor recommendations are made to optimize effectiveness, safety and comfort.

Where possible, changes are made immediately to the workstation. Working within the funder’s guidelines, recommendations for additional equipment are reported. The individual receives education on biomechanics, correct posture, exercises and stretches.

On-site assessment time is approximately 1.5 hours. An extensive written report is provided within one week of the assessment date.

*Travel Fees Additional, GST Additional

Multi-station Office Ergonomic Assessments $85/hr*

For offices with minimum of 6 employees and no need for formal written reports, this is a terrific opportunity to have a Kinesiologist spend one-on-one time with each person observing them at their workstation and make on the spot changes to promote optimal posture and ergonomic function.

Each assessment is approximately 30 minutes and includes;

History including employees’ reports of pain, injuries and physical limitations

Ergonomic set-up of equipment – including chair, desk, computer monitor, keyboard, mouse, telephone, etc.

Education regarding posture, stretching and over-all physical health at work

Wellness Programs

Optimizing hiring, employee retention, workplace culture and community can be challenging. Especially within a budget. Strengthen a healthy culture in your office with Symmetrix wellness services. We prepare packages priced on your wellness needs.

Assessing your working environment:

With wellness unmanaged, employees are left on their own to cope with any stress. Stress is a major health risk at work, and contributes to lower productivity and absenteeism.

Beyond just stress, corporate culture has a profound effect on an employee’s decision stay at their company. Employees rank unsatisfactory corporate culture in their top 3 sources of stress, according to a 2018 Udemy study(1).

What we do:

Let us come to you! At your workplace we will assess your needs to improve wellness and culture in your office. We go over the issues that matter most to your employees like workstation set up (and standing desks), staying active all week and eating right. Working with a professional kinesiologist is an optimal solution for increasing employee wellness.

Why are workplace services so beneficial to your company?

Employee retention and reduced absenteeism rates are the most significant factors that are positively influenced by effective worksite health initiatives. Research proves that an employee who feels appreciated, believes that his/her employer cares about his/her health and well-being and has resources for helping manage physical and mental stress will be more productive at work and will stay with an organization longer.

The scope of a program is primarily determined by the size of the company, budget, and senior management’s support. Symmetrix has the expertise to work with an organization’s internal resource team to provide the most suitable solutions; whether supporting an already existing program with our specialty services or developing a comprehensive, appropriate program for a company.
