Ergonomics Evaluations & Assessments are a Critical Part of an Effective Ergonomics and Musculoskeletal Injury Prevention Program.
AE Specialists work with your employees to identify and measure: fatigue, discomfort and pain levels, postural efficiency and cumulative stressors; barriers, MSD hazards and challenges; desktop equipment and technology; chairs, furnishings, workstation set-up, green zone organization, and much more. Our experts are focused on reducing risk, and at-risk behaviors and habits, and developing efficient postures. We offer chair-side and task-side education and coaching, with behavior reinforcement of desired goals and countermeasure techniques.
When you request ergonomic evaluations from Accurate Ergonomics, you receive focused, high-quality assessments from a “Dr. Certified” specialist. We provide preventive evaluations as part of a proactive plan to ensure the ongoing and improved health and safety of your employees. In addition, we offer “symptomatic” assessments and post-injury evaluations, which ensure an employee’s safe return to work.

It has been repeatedly shown that poorly designed ergonomics in the workplace, combined with a lack of effective education and skills training, result in productivity decline and an increase in MSD Injuries, Worker’s Compensation, presenteeism and disability costs.
Whether employees are performing manual material handling, repetitive tasks, sitting or standing at a desk, the intent of ergonomics is to adjust both the work environment and the employee, so that work may be performed safely, with minimal potential for injury or musculoskeletal stress. To ensure that equipment and processes are properly engineered for maximum operator health, comfort, safety and productivity, Accurate Ergonomics provides a broad spectrum of ergonomics assessments and training solution options.
An ergonomics assessment may be performed for any employee engaged in a variety of activities or tasks. For at-desk workers, having the right ergonomic equipment and tools for the job is important, however, how an employee uses and engages with their equipment and tools is a critical piece of solving long-term ergonomics challenges.
