ESA's Office Ergonomics Assessments are idea for situations in which an employee requires an in-depth analysis of the set-up and design of all workstation components, work tasks, and postures adopted. These assessments are typically provided when an employee is working in discomfort, is returning to work from an injury, and/or has a requirement for a job accommodation. We identify design, task and organizational issues that can contribute to worker pain and discomfort or result in reduced performance. You are provided with a report that clearly describes the hazards identified and the design / organizational factors that create them. The report includes a list of prioritized hazards, solutions, and an action plan that can be used by the employer to address any issues that could not be corrected during the assessment. The assessment requires approximately 1 hour/ worker.
The QEC is designed to provide a quick review of the design and set-up of an individuals workstation. The QEC is typically preceded by a one hour office ergonomics awareness session. After this session, an ESA consultant spends approximately 20 minutes with each participant, helping each worker understand how to set-up and adjust their existing workstation components while also identifying areas of concern and opportunities for improvement. ESA provides a list of prioritized hazards, solutions, and an action plan, in a concise report that can be used by the employer to address any issues that could not be corrected at the time of the QEC.
