Our ergonomic assessments are conducted at the workplace by a qualified physiotherapist or occupational therapist, involving a one-on-one assessment of a worker's workstation. Our clients are provided with a report including worker's background, any changes/suggestions made during the assessments and recommendations, including any suggested/modified equipment.
We conduct ergonomic assessments for new workers (prevention) and also for workers who are experiencing concerns with their current workstation set up or who may require workstation modifications due to injury.
Our assessments are designed to reduce the risk of work-related injury or exacerbation of existing injury by assessing the individual's
physical suitability to job requirements. Assessments typically include; medical history; musculoskeletal assessment; functional assessment; manual handling capacity; BMI; blood pressure; drug testing; vision testing; and fitness rating.
Our pre-employment health and functional assessments can be tailored to the specific physical requirements of your workplace/job
