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
