Office Site Evaluations
Individual office workstation evaluations are completed using an effective ergonomics assessment model and a structured interview process to gather information.
- Individuals are provided basic ergonomics education and educational materials at the time of the evaluation
- Measurements are taken
- An objective risk factor assessment is completed
- A discomfort/symptom survey is administered
When new equipment is recommended, we either define the equipment features and you decide what to order, or we make equipment recommendations with specific vendor, cost and ordering information outlined.
The evaluation time is typically 45 minutes. Individual typed written reports, outlining all findings and recommendations, are provided using the ERGO-NIZER web database program. When you read one of our reports, you are never left wondering what to do and how to solve the problem.
Evaluations are typically completed onsite but we are also capable of completing them virtually . The advantages of using this method include:
- Saves on travel time, which is environmentally more friendly
- The evaluation can be completed sooner
- Costs less
The process includes:
- We email the employee instructions
- We set a time to do the assessment by telephone
- The employee takes photos and measurements and emails these to the consultant
- The employee is contacted by telephone for the assessment
- We generate the same type of report as we do for the site assessments
- Follow ups are completed when requested
We have been performing virtual evaluations for years now with great success.
