Ergonomics is the relationship between people and the work environment. Ergonomic Programs focus on evaluating a specific work environment and job tasks to identify risk factors that could result in musculoskeletal dysfunction.
The WorkStrategies® Ergonomic Program includes three types of assessments: WorkRisk Analysis, WorkTask Analysis and WorkStation Analysis, addressing various occupational settings and each focusing on a different aspect of the worker's environment. Ergonomic programs are used to identify and quantify the physical demands and risk factors that may exist in the work environment and provide valid information to base an Injury Prevention or Post-Offer Employment Testing Program on.
