Ergonomic or Worksite Assessments

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:

  • new
  • returning from extended leave
  • relocating workstations
  • experiencing symptoms of pain or discomfort, or
  • returning to work following an injury or incident.
