Our workplace assessment services range from high-level prioritization surveys to detailed workplace improvements supported by hazard analyses and cost justification data.
We work through the core elements of our Occupational Ergonomic and Injury Management Program to help your company boost productivity and improve working conditions so that your employees are healthier and safer.
We then conduct an in depth assessment to determine the effectiveness, strengths and weaknesses of your current ergonomic program.
Lastly the Myergo software improves our clients return on their health and safety risk investments.
When conducting a workplace assessment, we ask few critical questions…
Where do the ergonomic issues exist in your company?
To discover where ergonomic issues exist within the facility we inspect the workstations and the work environment for ergonomic risk factors. This critical step can potentially eliminate or decrease the occurrence of injuries. If an injury does occur, hazard identification can act as a means of prevention of a chronic situation.
How often do you look for ergonomic hazards?
Hazard identification should be conducted periodically and should involve both planned and unplanned inspection methods.
What needs to be done to eliminate or control the ergonomic hazards?
To asses and prevent ergonomic hazards we determine which aspects of the workstation, process or work environment has an identified risk. Once a risk is identified we work with you to implement measures to eliminate or control the hazards as much as possible.
What prevention methods are you taking to prevent workplace injuries?
Remember, the best means of control is prevention. If a product, process or design change is to be implemented it is important to analyze the situation for the presence of risk before the final approval is given to complete the change.
What medical surveillance is in place to minimize risk factors?
We use both proactive and reactive strategies in medical management to attempt to eliminate the occurrence of injury by placing workers on jobs that match their physical capabilities. Medical surveillance protocols can also be administered in an effort to recognize risk factors before they become a problem.
