We help decrease the injuries
associated with occupational risks.
An evaluation can turn the ordinary office workstation into an inviting environment that not only encourages a healthier lifestyle, but also increases productivity. The evaluation can serve as a preventative measure, or it can be used when an employee is already under the care of a physician. It is recommended that employees are being addressed for even the smallest complaint to avoid missed work time and decreased productivity.
Karen will schedule a one-on-one meeting with you or your employee in their work space. The ergonomic evaluation will include observing and photographing the user’s current workstation. A typical evaluation will include on the spot changes, postural education, and discussion of daily work habits. A “risk assessment” is recorded prior to changes being made on-site.

INDIVIDUAL ERGONOMIC EVALUATION
A one-on-one employee evaluation that includes workstation assessment and adjustment, photos, RULA scoring and equipment recommendations if needed.
RULA (Rapid Upper Limb Assessment). RULA is a screening tool that assesses biomechanical and postural loading on the whole body with particular attention to the neck, trunk and upper limbs. The RULA measurement evaluates the exposure of the worker to ergonomic risk factors associated with upper extremity MSDs. MSDs can occur with high task repetition, forceful exertions and repetitive and sustained awkward postures.
This evaluation includes a four-page report covering employee’s personal and symptomatic history, along with on-site changes and facility and equipment recommendations.
An abbreviated evaluation to help employees who require minimal, yet valuable instruction to help them achieve the best working environment possible. The Ergonomic Expert offers the mini-evaluation as a lower cost option on the road to correct ergonomic adjustment.
This evaluation and one-on-one checklist includes onsite changes and facility and equipment recommendations. (Minimum volume required.)
