Individual Workstation Assessments
An individual workstation assessment is aimed at identifying any ergonomic risk factors that can contribute to discomfort or injury whilst working at the workstation.
1- The ergonomic workstation assessment commences with a history of any reported symptoms or discomforts whilst working at the workstation from the employee.
2- An individual analysis of the desk, chair, monitors, phone, mouse and keyboard is conducted to ensure a reduced ergonomic risk factor.
3- The workstation is then adjusted to suit the employee with any adjustments for specific job requirements and any pre-existing conditions.
4- Stretches are discussed to minimise injuries and encourage self management
5- A report is finalised with the ergonomic findings and and risk factors identified, as well as any specific ergonomic equipments. This report can be made out to Human Resources (HR) or to the employee.
During the Covid Pandemic workplaces quickly moved from well designed ergonomic workstations to kitchen countertops and couches.
Within our clinic we have seen an exponential increase of postural related pains particularly neck and lower back injuries associated with working off laptops and on unsupportive furniture.
We have since designed a virtual ergonomic system that allows us to have a face to face interaction with your employee from the comfort of their home, Covid safe. A full ergonomic workstation assessment can be completed using this interface that also takes into account home safety such as employee wellbeing, first aid kits and fire equipment.
