Ergonomic Assessments and Job Analysis

 

Granville Health System’s Rehabilitation Department now offers on-site ergonomic assessments and interventions specifically tailored to assist workers who are already injured to prevent work-related injuries. Evaluation goals are set to obtain the highest productivity from each worker, while maintaining his or her physical well-being and mental health.

 

The on-site ergonomic assessment has two stages. First, environmental considerations are studied by a trained therapist visiting the work site. The components of this stage include job analysis, work station mechanics, and hazard identification.

 

After the environmental study, the therapist issues a report on job/worker compatibility. The report will include recommendations and on-site instruction in the following areas:

 

  • Repetitive strain reduction
  • Physical and emotional fatigue prevention
  • Workstation design improvement
  • Body mechanics instruction
  • Tool modification
  • Pacing skills training
  • Stretching exercise training
  • Posture correction
  • Splint/adaptive aid
