What is Ergonomics?
Ergonomics is, literally, the study of work. It involves making changes
to a work site with the goal of fitting the task to the person. Our professionals
can evaluate how you fit your work tasks and then make recommendations
for improvements. For example, we may find that an office worker is too
cramped at his or her computer desk or an industrial worker is forced
to reach too high overhead. We can recommend ways to adjust these work
situations to reduce injury risks and make workers more comfortable and
Our services involve fitting the person to the task; testing potential
workers to ensure they have the physical abilities to do a job. By conducting
a Job Analysis and utilizing our state of the art BTE Technologies ER®,
we can determine the physical demands of a job and help identify suitable
workers to perform that job. This process helps prevent work-related injuries
and improves worker productivity.
When injuries do occur, we offer a Work Conditioning Program. This program
is tailored to each individual, getting workers back in shape for their
job. Once rehabilitated, we provide a Functional Capacities Evaluation
(FCE) to ensure the worker is ready to resume his or her duties and reduce
the chance of re-injury.
