Ergonomics Assessment / ErgoLab Equipment Trials
This assessment is the analysis of an employee's workstation, equipment, and environment to identify risk factors and their effects on the employee (force, repetition, awkward postures, contact stress, vibration, and more). The assessment investigates human factors, task requirements, workstation organization, and environmental factors. A detailed report is provided with photographs outlining the risk factors for the employee and the recommended behavioural, administrative and engineering control measures to reasonably accommodate the employee. We now offer an ergonomic and assistive device equipment trial program at our Clinic, where clients can trial the devices, furniture, and equipment which our occupational therapists are recommending,
