Ergonomic Assessments

An ergonomic assessment evaluates how a worker responds when performing a job in relation to the work environment. This analysis examines the fit between the worker and the job requirements. The assessment takes into account the worker’s size, strength and ability to handle the tasks, tools and work environment. We identify risks of the job and present recommendations for modifications.
