Ergonomics Program Development
Assists your company in developing an overall program to address ergonomics issues including training, hazard identification, assessment and control, development of key performance indicators, program management, and linkages with other existing health, safety and wellness programs.
Get input on your designs before implementation to help avoid the high costs of change after implementation. Design reviews look for the potential problems with the equipment, layout and tools for the end users that can create higher risk of injury than necessary.
Ergonomics assessments identify risk factors associated with the job demands and provide a range of control measures to reduce or eliminate exposure of the individuals performing these jobs, to the identified factors.
Assessments can be performed in a variety of settings including:
Physical Demands Analyses
Physical demands analyses identify the essential demands of job duties and are useful in matching the physical capabilities of employees via functional capacities assessments (not provided) to the physical demands of the job. PDA’s do not include recommendations to reduce demands per the ergonomics assessment.
A variety of training programs are available and can be customized to the needs of your organization. Training may take the format of “lunch & learn” sessions or more formal 1.5 to 3 hr sessions.
