Get Your Ergonomic Evaluation

Purpose

Identify ergonomic risks associated with performing a job in an office environment and make practical and cost effective recommendations that reduce or eliminate the risks and any worker discomfort.

Description

A licensed therapist will visit your worksite to identify the presence of injury risks. These risk factors are rated in terms of their seriousness and their connection to discomfort a worker may be experiencing. Recommendations are made to address the problems and education is provided on ways of sustaining a safe and productive work station.

Evaluations include a written report. In instances where new equipment is recommended, the report will specify the item/model numbers, prices and vendor contact information. Product trials are available from many of the vendors we deal with and Workability has a variety of demo equipment available for worker’s to try out before deciding on whether to buy the product or not.
