Ergonomic Evaluations

Sitting in a chair all day using a computer?  Performing repetitive tasks all day with equipment and machinery? Ergonomics will keep you healthy. The science of designing a task or job to fit the worker performing the job. Ergonomics helps to prevent workplace injuries, decreases lost work days, decreases mistakes and increases employee morale, efficiency and productivity.  Ergonomic evaluations can identify how a job can be modified or how a job could be completed with reductions in potential injuries leading to increased profitability in your business.

Our experienced ergonomic specialists use world renowned systems to assess work site hazards and recommend controls.

Our approach involves an initial visit from our ergonomic specialist to perform a general study of the flow of work in the facility and review jobs that require an ergonomic screening. The specialist will also have a short discussion with employees performing the tasks. Available injury statistics will be reviewed to determine any common trends. Concurrently, solutions that can be implemented immediately will be recommended.

Our specialist will then follow up to do specific studies to identify if there are specific ergonomic problems. This is called the “find it, fix it and check for success” process, and requires specialized assessment technique and tools.

The findings will be documented on an integrated Ergonomic Problem—Action Form. Every job would be observed at least twice at different times to ensure the findings recorded are accurate and complete.

The specific ergonomic problems in a job are reviewed and examined to determine the level of ergonomic acceptability using a structured and formalized rating system. The Best Exposure Scoring Technique is then used to determine a job hazard score to prioritize the risk.

This approach also enables a trained specialist to initially screen for risk factors and determine if the solutions identified solves the problem. The risk, risk rating and physical stressors are then documented on the Baseline Risk Identification of Ergonomic Form.

Our ergonomic specialist performs data analysis which may include NIOSH lifting equation, Push/pull/carry analysis, Design and build guidelines, Employee involvement and Pareto analysis. Recommendations for action are then provided and categorized into Engineering, Administrative, and work practices control. Priority Matrix is also added to provide a visual for the impact of each control to cost.

 

Physical Demands Analysis (PDA) Job Demands Analysis

HealthyWorker also conducts on-site job studies by looking at various features of the job.

This includes the environmental, psychosocial and physical demands of the job.

Our Occupational Specialist collects the data via observations and interviews of employees.

Upon completion and analysis, we provide a comprehensive report for each job with potential risk factors and the recommendations that may include administrative, workplace practices and engineering controls.

This helps employers, employees and health professional plan a modified return to work program and job placement.

Certified Occupational Health Nurse (Canada) Hourly Consultation Services.

Returning a worker to the work area as soon as reasonably possible following a work related or non-work related injury is the most effective way to return a worker to full duties in gainful and meaningful employment. The wonderful thing is that you have a business to manage. We understand that most companies simply do not have the time or resources to employ someone full time to be the return to work planning specialist. Your Human Resources personal and Supervisors have so many dual roles that asking them to plan the safe return of a worker to the work area is not as task that they are experienced in. HealthyWorker is able to assist you with this unique return to work planning requirement. We can provide you with custom documentation that uniquely demonstrates your Company requirements as they relate to the return to work process while protecting your worker’s health, and your corporate liabilities. Let us  guide you through both work related and non-work related return to work planning including the provision of alternate and modified duties, gradual return to work duties, physician’s letters and consolation, and employee consultation regarding their current health status. Your worker’s medical and mental health conditions are protected grounds under the Alberta Human Rights Act. Allow our professional staff to be the filter between the information that you need to convey to the Physician and what information you need from the Physician to plan the safe return to work of your Worker.
