Ergonomic Assessments in the Workplace
Reduce repetitive strain complaints in your workplace with an ergonomic assessment at your site. An occupational therapy consultant will assess problem areas and make recommendations for change to workstations, workflow or body mechanics with a focus on employee responsibility and behaviour change.
A worksite visit to understand your business and jobs will provide a baseline for understanding the demands on workers. It will provide us with an ability to recommend modifications for ergonomic improvements and safe body mechanics training.
Our highly qualified occupational therapists will build relationships with your workers and supervisors, observe your problem areas or high-risk employees and provide global and specific recommendations to reduce repetitive strain problems. Assessments also help with employee responsibility and behaviour change by reinforcing proper positioning, equipment and techniques. Providing immediate feedback assists in improving compliance with safe work procedures.
Online Ergonomic Assessments
When a worksite visit isn’t practical, assessments can be delivered digitally through video conference. This is an ideal way to address remote worksites or home offices.
All that is required is a stable internet connection and either a computer or laptop with a web camera OR a smartphone. When you book, you’ll get an email with a link to your appointment. At the time of your appointment, click the link and enter your name to check-in to the personal video conference with your physiotherapist.
