Advance your staff's abilities at work

LabourHealth now provides an ergonomic assessment of your workplace environment. This study focuses on your staff, how they 'relate' to their tools, equipment and work stations, as well as the postures they adopt in the process.

Site assessment of working conditions

Our analysis determines the physical demands on the bodies of your employees. What force they exert as they push, pull, lift and carry articles in their assigned work role. The duration period of their working conditions are analysed, with particular observation given to repetition, frequency and the total time associated with these tasks.

Joint biomechanics under working conditions

The body's range of joint movements, as they undergo a series of tasks, are also assessed. Current work practices are also evaluated in order to limit any potential injury.

Site assessment of working conditions

The goal of our study is to underline the benefits of achieving a balance between worker characteristics and task demands; and how ergonomics in the workplace enhances operator productivity, provides worker safety as well as physical/mental well-being and job satisfaction.
Examining static working postures:

  • Office

An ergonomically deficient workplace can cause physical and emotional stress, low productivity and poor quality of work.

  • These include:
    •  Computer monitor set up
    •  Chair height
    •  Desk layout
    •  Current employment of ergonomic aids
  • Driving (Eg. Forklifts)

Proper ergonomic design is necessary to prevent injury and other muscle-based concerns, which can develop over time and can lead to long-term disability.

  • Areas such as:
    •  Neck alignment
    •  Back support

When completed, we provide a full report detailing findings and recommendations.
