Ergonomic Assessments



Ergonomic assessments are widely becoming another step in the induction process of new team members, and the first line of defense against repetitive strain injuries. Due to the increasing number of Australian workers not only sitting behind a desk for up to 10 hours a day, but also performing work duties of a repetitive nature. Repetitive strain injuries are a growing area of concern and awareness.

Assist Group’s team of allied health professionals utilise their comprehensive knowledge of anatomy, postural assessments and biomechanical principals to perform effective and functional ergonomic assessments. The performance of these assessments can be either:

  • On a per person basis following reports of injury or symptoms

OR

  • Full workforce screening assessments to ensure all staff are working in an ergonomically sound environment

OR

  • Complete workplace redesign or audit and procurement of new workstation environments

WHAT ARE THE BENEFITS OF IMPLEMENTING AN ERGONOMIC ASSESSMENT PROGRAM?

The implementation of an ergonomic assessment program within your workplace can lead to the following benefits:

  • Reduced lost time due to injuries or absenteeism
  • Reduced insurance premiums due to a decline in workers compensation claims
  • Improved health and wellbeing of your employees
  • Improved staff productivity
  • Reducing expenditure on inappropriately procured workstations or equipment
