Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomic Assessments ascertain how an employee interacts with their workplace.

Overview

Ergonomic/Worksite Assessments are used to ensure that the work environment is suitable in order to prevent injuries or exacerbation of pre-existing conditions.

Inappropriate or poorly set up workspaces place people at risk and leave employers exposed to workers compensation claims.

Continued exposure to poorly set up workspaces and the misuse of computers, tools and furniture can result in musculoskeletal disorders, eye strain and other issues for employees.

Workplace Risk provides Ergonomic Assessments to ensure that workspaces are comfortable, practical, productive and ergonomically safe.

Workplace Risk utilises Ergonomic Assessments to;

  • Facilitate a person’s functional recovery from an injury
  • Prevent further injury or exacerbation of pre-existing conditions
  • Protect employees from injury and organisations from workers compensation claims
  • Improve productivity and employee wellbeing

Optimise the Workspace

In order to optimise the workspace, the Workplace Risk approach to Ergonomic Assessments includes;

  • In-depth assessment by our qualified Occupational Therapists
  • Consultation with staff, management, and key stakeholders
  • Ergonomic audit of the current work environment
  • Proactive identification of people at risk of injury
  • Application of Australian Building Standards and proven best practice
  • Actionable report of findings and prevention measures to be applied
  • Sta. training and self-managed behavioural change programs

Improve Performance & Reduce Risks

Workplace Risk Ergonomic Assessments provide an effective and efficient process to ensure that workspaces meet the requirements of WorkSafe and organisations meet their OH&S obligations under the Occupational Health and Safety Act.

Our approach can be used to address concerns that a specific employee raises about their work environment or to complete ergonomic assessments across the entire organisation.

Employees who are comfortable and ergonomically supported within their workstation are more productive and less likely to experience absenteeism.

Through ergonomic assessments, Workplace Risk delivers tangible bottom line savings and improves organisational culture.
