Ergonomic assessments can help determine methods to prevent injuries and can help manage an injury that has already occurred. Also, these assessments can help answer questions about injury causation and assist in claim resolution.
Ergonomic assessments identify and quantify ergonomic risk factors for a specific task or for all tasks on a job. Recommendations to eliminate or reduce ergonomic risk factors may be made. Studies have shown significant cost savings associated with ergonomic programs and interventions, especially in manufacturing environments.
Ergonomics is an important consideration in office environments.
Proper office work station set-up can greatly reduce musculoskeletal strain and reduce risk factors for tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, and other disorders. Often optimal work position can be achieved by adjusting existing work station components. If additional components or a change in components is required, recommendations are made.
