Ergonomics Evaluations & Assessments are a Critical Part of an
Effective Ergonomics and MSD Injury Prevention Program.
It has been repeatedly shown that poorly designed ergonomics in the workplace, combined with a lack of effective education and skills training, result in productivity decline as well as an increase in MSD Injuries, Worker’s Compensation, presenteeism and disability costs.
Whether employees are performing manual material handling, repetitive tasks, sitting or standing at a desk, the intent of ergonomics is to adjust both the work environment and the employee, so that work may be performed safely, with minimal potential for injury or Musculoskeletal stress. To ensure that equipment and processes are properly engineered for maximum operator health, comfort, safety and productivity, Accurate Ergonomics provides a broad spectrum of ergonomics assessments and training solution options.
An ergonomic assessment may be performed for any employee engaged in a variety of activities or tasks. For at-desk workers, having the right equipment and tools for the job is important, however, how an employee uses and engages with their equipment and tools is a critical piece of solving long-term ergonomics challenges.
Our Specialists work with your employees to identify and measure: fatigue and discomfort levels, postural efficiency and cumulative stressors; barriers, MSD hazards and challenges; desktop equipment and technology; chairs, furnishings, workstation set-up, green zone organization, and more. Our experts are focused on reducing at-risk behaviors and developing efficient postures. We offer chair-side and task-side education and coaching, with behavior reinforcement of efficient postures and countermeasure techniques.
When you request ergonomic evaluations from Accurate Ergonomics, you receive focused, high-quality assessments from a “Dr. Certified” Specialist. We provide preventive evaluations as part a proactive plan, to ensure the ongoing and improved health and safety of your employees. In addition, we offer “Symptomatic” assessments and post injury evaluations, which ensure an employee’s safe return to work.
Worksite Evaluations & Risk Assessments
Accurate Ergonomics is available to perform a comprehensive Worksite Evaluation of your entire facility, as well as any department or workgroup. Specialists meet with Stakeholders, walk the facility, identify risk and observe employees while tasks are performed. Includes a Report of Findings and discussion during a webinar.
Ergonomics evaluations may be performed online or in person. Job-Side and Chair-side education and coaching is provided, as well as forms and reports. Measurements are taken and recorded, as well as photographs, the employee is interviewed, adjustments are made to equipment and in-depth chair-side education and training is provided, so that employees are able to incorporate health, wellness and postural efficiency concepts and countermeasures, as they work.
Accurate Ergonomics also offers:
Classroom Ergonomics Training
On-Line Courses with a Self-Assessment Process
Course Materials, Desktop Reminders & More
There are several engaging courses to choose from.
Multiple At-Desk Workers
An efficient and effective method for preventing MSD Injuries and evaluating numerous at-desk employees, is to provide an Ergonomics and Injury Prevention Training class for each workgroup. During training, employees receive all of the knowledge they need to maintain their health, posture and prevent injuries for themselves and their coworkers. Employees are provided the tools necessary to perform a self-assessment and make their own desktop and workstation adjustments.
Added Value Choices
At-Desk Worker Training classes may be followed by individual basic (non-symptomatic), or detailed (symptomatic) ergonomic assessments. This process takes 30 to 90 minutes and transfers the concepts and skills learned during training directly to the employee’s workstation. For large groups, or where an entire workforce is involved, we can provide electronic surveys to determine and prioritize which employees need the most assistance.
Online Courses may be Combined with a
Digital Survey & Case Management Tools.
