Risk assessment is simply a careful examination of what, in your work, could cause harm to people, to ensure enough precautions have been taken /should do more to prevent harm. This process involves identifying ergonomic risk factors, prioritize in terms of exposure and develop risk reduction strategies
If you have a work process, job task, or workstation that requires improvement, if you have been suggested to improve the ergonomics in your workplace, or you want to minimize workplace injuries and be an industry leader; conducting an Ergonomic Risk Assessment will be the smart thing to do.
ERGONOMIC RISK ASSESSMENTS
Ergonomic Risk Assessments include:
- A thorough scientific onsite review of the workstation, job tasks, work process and work environment
- Involving stakeholders– we work with your employees, supervisors, designers and engineers to ensure the root cause of any issue is identified and addressed and appropriate solutions are outlined
- A gap analysis is done that outlines the likely cause of hazards or accidents that were identified
- A Comprehensive Written Recommendation Report that includes engineering, design, critical dimensions, administrative and work method options for job improvement
- Prioritization of controls for injury reduction potential, cost and productivity
- Sourcing the material (vendor information)– where can you purchase equipment and recommended products
We provide effective solution at an optimal price!
ERGONOMICS DESIGN AND WORKSTATION REVIEWS
It is always good to have the task, equipment or product parameters meet ergonomic design standards and “fit the people” by conducting an ergonomic design and workstation review.
Are you purchasing new office chairs, desks and equipment? Having an Ergonomist review the products you have selected will not only ensure they will be suitable for your jobs but also will be helpful to avoid future injuries. The common costly mistake done by organizations often is to wait until all new equipment have been installed and then have it reviewed. It is often observed that organizations buy the same “ergonomic” chairs and keyboard trays for all staff members, only to find out that the keyboard trays are too small and the chairs do not have all of the required adjustments.
When we review your design and workspace we work hand in hand with your whole team. We provide you with the critical ergonomic dimensions, pictures or drawings, and the vendor information you need to ensure an ergonomic design. We also suggest suitable equipment which are suitable for your people and the type of job they do.
This service includes a walk through review of operations, interviews with facilities management, operation personnel and related individuals, review of all records such as injury statistics, workers’ compensation, medical records and overview of ergonomics initiatives currently in place. Based on the data obtained, recommendations for enhancing the ergonomics process along with a proposed ergonomics action plan for an ergonomics program will be presented.
