What is a “Ergonomic Assessment”?
An Analyse Health Ergonomic Assessment is an extensive analysis and implementation of an employee’s working environment such as a desk, office, vehicle or other locations that is designed to ensure staff and their work habits are safe and sustainable in the correct postures for their role and body types.
No two staff members are physically the same. Therefore, no two workstations should be set up the same. At Analyse Health, we aim to ensure that employees are comfortable and appropriately supported by their environment to complete their roles effectively and without exposure to injury. Be that suddenly or over time.
Analyse Health realises that ergonomics needs to be taken out of the standard desk assessment and into the entire workplace. Not only should office staff be able to benefit from the most effective ergonomic posture, but also factory staff, sales reps and jack of all trades employees. Analyse Health can assess staff member’s physical attributes, and compare that to the environment in which they need to complete their role. Then make the best adjustments, additional equipment requirements and recommendations to ensure they too are in the most effective ergonomic posture. This service also includes training of staff to use the new equipment recommended and how to readjust their set up if it is used by multiple staff members on different shifts.
By using Analyse Health’s Ergonomic Assessments, results can occur such as a reduced rate of workers’ compensation claims, reduced staff sick leave days taken and improved productivity as staff are appropriately matched to the physical requirements of the role they are employed to complete.
Each of our Ergonomic Assessments are conducted by our professionally qualified and experienced consultants.
Ergonomic Assessments can also be referred to as Ergonomic Evaluations, Workstation Assessments, Ergo Assessments, Desk Evaluations, Workstation Evaluations, Ergonomic Desk Assessments, Vehicle Ergonomic Assessments and Vehicle Ergonomic Evaluations.
