Office and Industrial Ergonomic Assessments

Whether in the office or at the job site, an ergonomic assessment can improve the health and safety of employees. An ergonomic assessment helps to prevent:

  • Back, neck and shoulder pain
  • Eye strain 
  • Headaches 
  • Repetitive strain injuries

An ergonomic assessment completed by an occupational therapist ensures that all aspects of the individual’s performance are considered as possible contributors to decreased function, including:

  • Stress
  • Non-work related activities
  • Past injury/history of discomfort
  • Other health issues

An ergonomics assessment can help you at home too! As telecommuting becomes more common it is important to ensure your home workstation is not going to contribute to injuries.  Consider a home office workspace evaluation for safe computer use for you and the entire family -  it may even be covered by workplace benefits!
