What is an Ergonomic Assessment?

Ergonomics is the science of designing the job, equipment, and workplace to fit the worker.  An ergonomic assessment identifies ergonomic risk factors and provides solutions based on ergonomic standards, considerations with respect to the individual’s reported medical condition/symptoms, and best practices in ergonomics, anthropocentrics, personal preferences, and described job functions.

Peak Kinesiology assesses office workstations and provides written recommendations to optimize the workstation configuration and reduce and/or eliminate repetitive strain symptoms. Moreover, an ergonomic assessment can optimize a workstation to improve work efficiency and comfort for employees suffering from other types of injuries or disabilities.  On-the-spot adjustments of existing equipment, if required, are done at the time of the assessment as well to optimize the workstation.

An office ergonomic assessment includes the following:

  • Ergonomics of workstation.
  • Environmental lighting and glare.
  • Employee posture.
  • Employee duties e.g. amount of sitting, keyboarding, mouse work, telephone calls, etc.
  • Education for employees regarding sitting breaks, stretching, posture, etc.
  • Recommendations for configuration and equipment.
  • On-the-spot adjustment of existing equipment.
  • Recommendations for employee posture and work behavior.
  • A written report in an easy-to-read format.
  • Follow up, installation, and set up of new equipment, if required.
