Are you concerned about your employees’ well-being? Ergo-Safety conducts on-site ergonomic assessments at your Ottawa-area home or work office. We can also analyze, design, assess, and deliver workplace-specific ergonomics training programs. We can help you modify and design your workplace and improve your in-house ergonomics program.
Companies are often prompted to contact us because their employees are suffering from some form of musculoskeletal discomfort at work, at home, or both. In many cases, these employees have already consulted a health provider who has recommended that they request an ergonomic assessment of their workspace. An ergonomic assessment can determine if there are any factors in your employees’ work environment or at their work station that may be contributing to their discomfort.
In addition to ergonomic assessments, we provide expertise in the following areas:
Office and industrial ergonomics
Workstation selection and office layout
Back education, lifting training, and injury prevention
Physical demands analysis
Manual material handling and lifting
Sitting versus standing workstation ergonomics
Modified work program design
Musculoskeletal injury reduction
Equipment and tool purchasing and design
Ergonomic furniture and accessory purchasing
Consultations are available in both English and French. Contact us today to book an appointment.
The Benefits of Ergonomics Consulting
As costs continue to grow and technology increases in complexity, a safe and ergonomically sound workplace is a prerequisite for competitiveness. If your employees are getting injured or your business is suffering from high Workplace Safety and Insurance Board (WSIB) costs, absenteeism, or low morale, our practical ergonomics approach combined with a sound knowledge of business objectives can benefit you by minimizing these problems and, in some cases, eliminating them. In fact, ergonomics has many benefits:
Improves employee health and safety
Helps injured workers return to work
Improves morale and well-being
Improves productivity and work quality
Fits tasks to abilities
Increases knowledge and skill
Helps your business comply with legislation
Reduces WSIB costs
