Process of Ergonomic Assessment
The process, generally, starts with the inspection of the workplace. The team visits the workplace and takes note of the problems and accesses the risk factors. They take into consideration the type of chairs available for the employee and other such factors.
Images and Videos
During the assessment, experts take images and make videos of the workstation to get a better idea of the factors that affect the employee’s health.
Discussion with Employee
The assessment experts then talk to the employee to get feedback from them. This step helps to get critical insights on the prevalent risks they face. A series of questions are asked to them about the nature of their job, health conditions they have etc.
Based on the data experts have collected, they prepare a detailed report. This report also includes images/videos captured during the initial phase.
Lastly, recommendations for necessary adjustments are made to ensure the employee works in a proper condition with a minimum chance of suffering from any health issue due to poor ergonomics. Also, if the employee requires additional equipment, it is included in the list of recommendations.
