Ergonomic Assessments

Ergonomic assessments are systematic evaluations of the conditions of a work environment. The premise of these assessments is to identify and address environmental variables that may contribute to discomfort, pain and potential injury. Based on your preference, one of our trained workplace assessors can help to identify the potential problem areas of a workstation either in-person or virtually.

Below are the some of the items analyzed in a Stride Ergonomic Assessment:

  1. Workstation Setup: This involves evaluating the key features of workstations, including desk height, chair ergonomics, monitor placement, keyboard and mouse positioning, and the overall layout of the workspace.
  2. Tools and Equipment: Ergonomic assessments consider the implements employees use in their work, such as phones, mice, computers, and hand tools.
  3. Employment Demands: Assessors evaluate the physical demands of specific job tasks which may include lifting and carrying heavy objects, repetitive motions, and periods of stagnation such as sitting or standing.
  4. Environmental Factors: Ergonomic assessments also consider environmental factors such as lighting and noise that can lead to irritation and reduction of performance.
  5. Education and Exercise: One of the goals of the assessment is to have the means to detect and correct the variables that can lead to workplace malaise. Recommendations may include exercises to combat pre-existing problems or to prevent problems from beginning in the first place.
  6. Documentation: After the assessment, a report is conducted by your assessor, outlining key themes and recommendations.

The aim of a Stride Ergonomic Assessment is to create a safer, more comfortable, and more productive work environment.
