Discover the Surprising High Impact/ Low Cost Solutions of Office Ergonomic Assessments:
Optimize the existing setup.
Sara R. was experiencing neck pain working at her computer. Her duties included transcribing data from spreadsheets located on a document holder. Her pain would resolve over the weekend but return once she was back to work. Sara wears bifocal lenses and viewing the screen through the bottom half of her glasses made it difficult to perform her work without craning her neck back in an awkward position. Adjustments made to her workstation like lowering her monitor and tilting her screen allowed her to look at the computer in a comfortable position without straining her neck.
Improve employee's work habits.
Theresa M., a receptionist, was experiencing low back pain during her shift. Although her workstation setup was ergonomically correct, it was observed that she bent over frequently to obtain charts from a lower shelf. After identifying this repetitive task, simple modifications were made to her workspace and work habits. The charts were relocated to a waist height shelf, and she was educated on the use of correct body mechanics to prevent further injury.
Solutions based on the root cause of discomfort.
Matt A. provides IT support to hospital employees and was complaining of right shoulder and wrist pain at his workstation. During the assessment, it was noted that his chair was only height adjustable, and he was reaching forward to use the mouse on his desk top. Although his chair had limited adjustability, the root cause of his pain was the placement of his mouse. Recommendations were prioritized to mitigate his wrist and shoulder discomfort.
