Ergonomic Evaluation

What is an Ergonomic Evaluation?

An Ergonomic Evaluation is an assessment conducted at the specific work-site to determine if there is a need for any work site changes to prevent injuries or to help the employee return to his/her normal duties.

As part of the recommendations, the Evaluator will comment on postural and biomechanical changes, pacing strategies, and various stretches to optimize the client’s performance at work.
