Ergonomic Assessment

If your staff members suffer from aches and pains or are having trouble focusing, then it might be time to book in for an ergonomic assessment with Job Fit. Simple changes made in and around a workspace can make huge differences in the way our bodies cope. These changes can help improve productivity and reduce or prevent pains that can be associated with general office duties.

Due to the increasing number of workers sitting in front of a computer for longer periods of time, ergonomics is quickly becoming a key step in the prevention of repetitive strain injuries.

The method we use to assess a workers workstation involves:

  • Each ergonomic assessments takes 15-20 minutes
  • The ergonomic assessments are performed for a staff member while they are present
  • Appropriate changes to the setup will be made during the consultation. The staff members’ work demands will be taken into consideration
  • A detailed report will be developed and sent to the HR department or appropriate person

_

All ergonomic assessments are performed by a trained and experienced safety consultant who will complete an ergonomic checklist. The report will include all outcomes of the consultation such as: the workstation layout, any adjustments that were made during the consultation, suitability of additional office equipment, individuals symptoms (if any), and typical work demands of the individual. We will educate your staff to self-assess their posture, how to structure the day to minimise the rate of fatigue and provide other injury prevention tips.
