Ergonomics Assessment

What is an Ergonomics Assessment?

An ergonomics assessment, also called an ergonomic risk assessment or workplace assessment, is a process used to evaluate the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) due to a mismatch between workplace design and employee capabilities. Once physical risk factors are identified, steps are taken to systematically improve the work environment for employees. The goal is to improve employee well-being, job performance, and job satisfaction.

Why Do an Ergonomics Assessment?

MSDs are a leading cause of workplace injuries and illnesses, accounting for as much as one third of all injury and illness costs. In fact, just one ergonomics related injury can cost between $60,000 and $80,000. More importantly, ergonomics interventions can improve your employees’ health and quality of life. On average, good ergonomics have been shown to:

  • Reduce errors and workers comp costs
  • Increase total productivity and individual productivity
  • Decrease absenteeism and lost workdays
  • Cut the need for professional care
