Ergonomic or Worksite Assessments assist in the prevention of workplace injury and support employees who may require specific ergonomic equipment due to a disability or previous injury.
What is an Ergonomic Assessment?
An Ergonomic Assessment is specifically designed to assess an individual’s workstation, to ensure it is set up in a way that will cause minimum risk to the employee’s health and wellbeing.
What is a Worksite Assessment?
A Worksite Assessment examines broader issues in the workplace, including identifying suitable work duties and ways of modifying work demands to facilitate a safe return to work. Worksite Assessments may also recommend physical modifications to an office, such as the installation of ramps or rails, to support a returning employee.
Do I need an assessment?
Worksite or Ergonomic Assessments can be provided for employees who are:
- returning from extended leave
- relocating workstations
- experiencing symptoms of pain or discomfort, or
- returning to work following an injury or incident.
