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 ergonomics
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 outpatient ergonomics services involve an assessment of your work area
to determine the most efficient use of space, thereby helping to maximize
efficiency. This process helps prevent work-related injuries and improves
worker productivity. Should an injury 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.
