Assess

Through our comprehensive surveys and workstation evaluations, not only do we identify problem areas, we also provide customized and effective recommendations at all levels of the organization.

Individual Evaluations

Ergonomic Evaluation

LENGTH      45 – 60 minutes (onsite)

Choose our full ergonomic evaluation for an employee who has an injury, discomfort, or medical condition. We send out a symptom survey and consent form prior to the appointment, then review with the individual onsite. We employ an educational approach, make immediate adjustments as able and as appropriate to past or current reported discomfort, and provide a comprehensive handout. Within 10 days of the evaluation, we provide a comprehensive report including the employee concerns, intervention details, before and after photos, and additional recommendations. We also provide two brief remote follow-ups, and circle back to you to close the case – at no additional charge! 

ADA Accommodation

LENGTH      1.5 – 2 hours (onsite)

If an employee has an injury or disability requiring accommodation or careful attention to reduce the cause of or aggravating factors, choose our most extensive evaluation. We send out a symptom survey and consent form prior to the appointment, then review with the individual onsite. We employ an educational approach, make immediate adjustments onsite as able, and provide a comprehensive handout. The report has a similar content structure to the Ergonomic Evaluation Report. We also provide two brief remote follow-ups, and circle back to you to close the case – at no additional charge!

Job Coaching (onsite)

Enjoy the benefits of having one of our consultants onsite helping one employee learn specific task-oriented biomechanics or alternative work techniques to:

      Red Arrow Bullet     Ensure safe return to work after an injury

      Red Arrow Bullet     Prevent an ache or discomfort from turning into an injury or claim

     Red Arrow Bullet     Improve learning for an employee having difficulty transferring injury prevention techniques at work

     Red Arrow Bullet     Ensure employees break bad habits and learn safer new ones with one on one feedback and coaching

Health Fair Consults

LENGTH      20 minutes (per participant) - onsite

Our team of experts offers high impact one-on-one ergonomic and/or wellness consultations on a sign-up basis at health fairs.  Ergo consultations include office or home ergonomic education. Wellness consultations include general fitness and nutrition education, and bioelectrical impedance body fat testing and interpretation is available. 

Facility or Department Assessments

Anonymous Symptom Survey

Don’t know where to start? Our company-wide symptom survey is an industry-leading approach to achieve best practices under global safety standards. Administered anonymously to employees, the survey pinpoints areas and intensity of discomfort associated with various job tasks. Our experts analyze the data and provide a summary of findings prioritizing areas of focus to reduce risk factors. When these surveys are used as an ongoing “surveillance” program, they facilitate the assessment and identification of potential health concerns at an early stage, where corrective actions can minimize business impact. This can be repeated at a minimum of 6 months after intervention.  

 

Anonymous Employee Perception Survey

Another approach to accomplish best practices under global safety standards, this company-wide survey solicits employee feedback on perceived risk factors associated with various job tasks such as exertion, repetition, and awkward postures. Therefore, it is the backbone for employee participation in and ownership of continuous ergonomic and safety improvements.  We analyze the data and provide a summary of findings.  This assists you in recognizing and prioritizing primary areas of focus to reduce ergonomic risk factors. When these surveys are used as an ongoing “surveillance” program, they facilitate the assessment and identification of potential health concerns at an early stage, where corrective actions can minimize business impact. This can be repeated at a minimum of 6 months after intervention.

Lean Ergonomics Assessment

This assessment blends lean principles with standardized ergonomic assessment tools to increase productivity, efficiency and profitability while also reducing occupational risk factors.  We prefer to collaborate with your employees as well as in-house lean and/or ergonomics team members at a task, job, department or facility level.  These evaluations can be “formal” or “informal”, or a blend of both according to your objectives, executive needs, and budget.  Call to discuss.  Either way, we will provide a detailed report with short, mid, and long term solutions for consideration – often resulting in a 2+-year road map of continuous improvement!  

Industrial eFIT©: Ergonomic Fix It Today©

The eFIT© event is a follow up to and a compliment to the work we've already done for you. It is a 1- to 3-day continuous improvement event designed to identify and mitigate ergonomic risk factors in the workplace across several tasks after the team receives some ergonomic awareness training. 

While high-cost or long-term solutions may be identified, the focus of a fast-paced eFIT© event is to utilize a cross-functional team approach to determine quick-fix solutions that reduce ergonomic risk, improve efficiency, and increase employee comfort. You can get between 10 - 30 ideas to improve an area.

Ergonomic Fix It Today© continuous improvement event. The eFIT© event is a follow up to and a compliment to the work we've already done for you.

An eFIT© event is a 1- to 3-day continuous improvement event designed to identify and mitigate ergonomic risk factors in the workplace across several tasks after the team receives some ergonomic awareness training.  While high-cost or long-term solutions may be identified, the focus of a fast-paced eFIT© event is to utilize a cross-functional team approach to determine quick-fix solutions that reduce ergonomic risk, improve efficiency, and increase employee comfort. You can get between 10 - 30 ideas to improve an area.

An eFIT© event typically has 4-6 team members including one individual from engineering/operations. Each event starts with 45 minutes of training (unless already delivered), introductions and understanding the eFIT© process and purpose.  During the event, teams will talk with employees and listen to concerns, observe the process to identify risk factors, brainstorm improvement ideas and work together to correct items as quickly as possible.

Many of the low-cost improvements will already be in motion as a result of the team involvement.  By the end of Day 1 we could have sketches and someone starting to build fixtures, carts, racking etc. If we can open a catalog and find the solution, we'll want to get it ordered; if not, we'll try to have it built. 

At the conclusion of the event, the team will present findings with before and after photos.  Any additional items will be logged and tracked to completion.  The output is a spreadsheet of action items for an area to work on for the next 4-6 weeks. There will be a 30- and 60-day follow up call (no more than 1 hour each) to answer any questions and ensure the items have been completed or there is a plan in place to address the outstanding issues. 

For these events to be successful... they need to be well-resourced with the right team members, management support, and some budget to work with.

Informal Walk-Through Assessment

We use an observational approach to identify biomechanical ergonomic risk factors at a task, job, department or facility level. A summary is provided prioritizing risks/hazards that were observed and providing short-term solutions as well as suggestions for next steps.

Physical Demands Job Task Analysis

A Physical Demands Job Task Analysis is a written detailed measurement of the physical demands of a job position most useful for jobs in the Medium-Heavy-Very Heavy physical demand category or jobs that are highly repetitive. This detailed assessment document is the backbone of your Return to Work, Ergonomic, and Injury Prevention efforts. It eliminates the need for the medical provider to rely solely on the injured worker's verbal descriptions of the physical demands of the job and we validate ours. A validated Job Task Analysis can then be used for:

     Red Arrow Bullet     Hiring and Firing

     Red Arrow Bullet     Workers compensation claims medical review

     Red Arrow Bullet     Early and appropriate return to work

     Red Arrow Bullet     Creation of light duty / modified duty / transitional Return to Work programs

     Red Arrow Bullet     Creation of a physical ability Pre-Work Screen

     Red Arrow Bullet     Compliance with the American's with Disability Act (ADAAA) and EEOC

Creating the Age Friendly Workplace©

WHO            Management and supervisors

LENGTH      2 – 3 hours

Most workplaces have workers considered to be ‘aging’ (over the age of 40), and many employees need to work longer – sometimes past social security age – to maintain their quality of life. Furthermore, several industries are experiencing a shortage of a younger skilled workforce to replace those who are retiring, increasing the urgency with which employers modify the workplace so the older workforce can perform their work both efficiently and without injury.

What does it mean to create an age-friendly workplace? And what are some simple things you can do to help your older workers be efficient and avoid injury? Don’t be caught off guard as your working age demographic shifts! This workshop describes what happens physiologically as we age as well as measures to accommodate those changes in the workplace to keep ALL valuable employees engaged and working injury free.

How Material Layout Impacts Safety & Efficiency

WHO            Management and supervisors

LENGTH      1.5 hours

Materials movement is at the heart of construction, labor, and manufacturing activities, ergonomics, and Lean methods, so you will learn how they can all be integrated very nicely! We will introduce the relationship between Lean philosophy and safety philosophy as well as how this relationship will help you speak to management and buy-in for your solutions. We will explore how Lean principles can relate to construction on-the-ground as well as more strategically.   Examples will be reviewed and we will provide practical methods of beginning to work toward a “leaner” construction process and construction site, resulting in an improved bottom line due to improved injury prevention and productivity.

OSHA 30 Construction Ergonomics Modules©

WHO            Superintendents, Safety Personnel, Foreman

Ergo for a Healthier Workplace!©

WHO            Management and supervisors

LENGTH      1 – 1.25 hours

Ergonomics is misunderstood, in terms of strategy, impact on health, impact on productivity, and business benefit. This session will correct those misunderstandings, explain the connections between health/wellness and ergonomics/safety, reveal the true costs of injuries, delineate the continuum from worst to best ergonomics strategies so you can identify ergonomic needs for your organization or your clients, and help you make the business case for incorporating ergonomics into health/wellness.

Front-Line Ergonomic Workshops

Custom Training Modules & Materials (ideally from Task Force work)

WHO            Task Force Members

LENGTH      4-6 sessions  (onsite, possibly virtual)

A wonderful way to leverage an Industrial Assessment is to dual-purpose what’s learned by having us create custom training modules & materials. The best method to accomplish training and culture change that will “sitck” is having us facilitate an Ergonomics Task Force to trial and perfect short-term and mid-term solutions which become the new best practices. From this and a consensus building process, we can develop customized training materials, such as:

  • Standards of Work (primarily visual)
  • Competency Checklists
  • Memory Joggers and other Coaching Aids
  • PowerPoint and/or Video Modules 

We meet with all the Ergonomics Task Force members over 4-6 sessions to provide initial ergonomics education and then facilitate the development of consistent and repeatable peer-vetted best practices that will lead to customized training for each risk condition/task that was originally assessed.
