ErgoFit’s Comfort Zone™ - Office Ergonomics Software powered by ErgoSquad

Don’t know where to start? Tired of managing ergonomics from the rear view mirror? Interested in employee engagement, cost containment and quantifiable analytics? Finally, a software solution for small businesses too!

Our new web-based SaaS, using ErgoFit’s approach, could be your breath of fresh air and move your organization toward global best practices! Features include assessment tracking, individualized training, and simple dashboard management. See this flyer  and call us for a demo.There are two ways organizations can use the software: 

  1. As periodic organization-wide benchmarking. Don’t know where to start? Tired of managing ergonomics from the rear view mirror? 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.

  2. As an Enterprise-wide management solution for companies with more than 250 employees. This can be request-driven or mandated for everyone.  Pilot programs costs will be credited toward seat licenses if you decide on full implementation. Key benefits to you:

      1. You get to keep your data if you ever decide to change vendors or abort the program.

      2. You can customize your reporting, processes, solutions and purchasing guidelines on your own, we can assist, or we can manage it all for you.

On-Site Ergonomic Evaluation LENGTH      45 – 60 minutes (onsite)

Choose our full ergonomic evaluation for an employee who has an injury, discomfort, or medical condition. We aim to schedule the appointment to occur within 1-2 weeks of first contact with employee. 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 (at 2 weeks and 8 weeks), and circle back to you to close the case; and if there are lingering issues, we will follow up directly with the employee to try to resolve (up to 10 min. phone call) – all at no additional charge!

Remote Evaluation LENGTH      45 – 60 minutes (phone or videoconference)

This is a remote version of our On-Site Ergonomic Evaluation. We aim to schedule the appointment to occur within 1-2 weeks of first contact with the employee. Prior to the consultation, we send out a symptom survey and request specific photos and workstation measurements via our how-to guide. To start the evaluation, we review the symptom survey with the employee. We then employ an educational approach and suggest immediate adjustments as appropriate for the reported concerns or discomfort. Within 10 business days of the evaluation, we provide a comprehensive report including the employee concerns, intervention details, photos, and additional recommendations. Occasionally, we will request photos following the consultation to ensure appropriate changes were made. We also provide two brief remote case management follow-ups (at 2 weeks and 8 weeks), and circle back to you to close the case; and if there are lingering issues, we will follow up directly with the employee to try to resolve (up to 10 min. phone call) – all at no additional charge!

Ergo Screen (aggregate report) LENGTH      up to 25 minutes per person (onsite)

These are best when employees are preventive, early intervention, and are not seeking allied health or medical treatment due to an injury or chronic condition. Our consultants meet with each employee for up to 25 min. each to evaluate their workstation and employ immediate adjustments for the highest risk conditions. Within 10 business days of the screens, we will deliver an aggregated spreadsheet that identifies each employee’s general concerns, and additional recommendations for you to follow-up on, if there are any.  A 2-person minimum is required, and one evaluator can see 14-16 employees on average. In some cases, we can send more than one evaluator at a time. For more than 4 employees, we recommend using our on-line self-select appointment system. Please Note: For those who end up having complex issues, a 2nd visit or remote appointment to finish the assessment may be required.

Ergo MINI Screen (aggregate report) LENGTH      up to 10 minutes per person (onsite)

These are a mini version of the regular Screens, where the evaluator spends up to 10 min. with each person to employ immediate coaching and work habit and positioning adjustments for the highest risk conditions we identify. Within 10 business days of the screens, we will deliver an aggregated spreadsheet that identifies each employee’s concern, and additional recommendations for you to follow-up on, if there are any. A 4-person minimum is required. In some cases, we can send more than one evaluator at a time. Please Note: For those who end up having complex issues, a 2nd visit or remote appointment to finish the assessment may be required.

ADA Accommodation Evaluation LENGTH      1.25 – 1.5 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 will follow the same process outlined in the Ergonomic Evaluation and the report has a similar content structure to the Ergonomic Evaluation Report. 

Health Fair Consults LENGTH      20 minutes (on-site)

Our team of experts offers high impact 20-min. 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.

 Ergonomic Workshops

 What to Aim For!© LENGTH      45 minutes

WHO            All employees

We will walk your employees through our Workstation Adjustment Guide handout, using live demonstrations at the front of the training room.  This workshop has been very popular because there is no PowerPoint; instead, it is human-powered! Our instructor will explain in practical terms, verbally and through demonstration, the various ergonomic guidelines and postures your employees should be aiming for. They will return to their workstation with a step-by-step guide and are encouraged to “buddy up” to make adjustments.  This is an especially impactful workshop when it is followed up with our Screens service 2-3 weeks later.

 Take Charge of Your Ergonomic Health!© LENGTH      1 – 1.25 hours

WHO            All employees

This office ergonomics workshop focuses on the symptoms and causes of cumulative trauma, and how to reduce aches and pains by making several simple changes to employees’ existing workstations. Photographs are used as case studies to demonstrate common problems and solutions, and we recommend customizing content to your equipment. Typically people can fix most of their own ergonomic problems after this workshop, but for those who get stuck, we provide 1:1 Screens after the workshop for fine-tuning.

Partial customization involves our trainer taking ~ 10 min. to walk through your facility immediately prior to the workshop and adjusting what is emphasized or de-emphasized “on the fly”.  Full customization involves our trainer learning the functionality of your equipment and getting photos of your equipment 2 weeks prior to the training so the photos and relevant information can be embedded into the presentation and irrelevant content can be removed.

Assessments /  Education /  Design Consultation

design

Prevention through Design is the process for reducing occupational health and safety hazards during design and purchasing processes to prevent work related injuries, maximize efficiency and improve profitability associated with various job tasks and facilities. It is considered a world-class best practice! 

 Ergonomic Policy and Procedure Consultation

We can develop new or audit existing policies and procedures within your ergonomic / health / safety departments.  This can include topics such as ergonomic equipment policy, requests, protocols, remote worker issues, and general guidelines.

 Ergonomic Facility Design Consultation

We do not want you to build or configure your work areas, furniture or equipment in a way that causes injury risk and human inefficiencies…ultimately wasting money retrofitting later! Whether a reconfiguration, tenant improvement or a new construction, we can collaborate with your architect, design team, and furniture vendors to provide recommendations that suit the job tasks, job equipment, and workflow of your employees. Incorporating custom, expert-based ergonomics (not ergonomic labels) into your design will create safer, more productive, and more sustainable work areas for your people. 

Starter Design Guidelines 

Not ready for custom design recommendations? Try our off-the-shelf Starter Design Guidelines that provide generic design considerations.

 Ergonomic Equipment Purchasing Consultation

Often we see a variety of types of equipment in a facility, most of it lacking legitimate or sufficient beneficial ergonomic features. Ergonomic equipment purchasing guidelines help streamline procurement and avoid potentially harmful or unnecessary purchases.  We can work with your team to provide a customized list of preferred ergonomic equipment based on an evaluation of your space. We can also work with you to develop standardized purchasing guidelines and ergo criteria for equipment specific to your organization, which can include collaboration with your vendors to create custom order forms or website links. We are here to assist you in the purchasing process as much or as little as you’d like, and offer an extensive list of itemized services to custom build a package based on your specific needs.

This dove-tails well with the Train The Evaluator: Office Ergonomics Screens©course, as your in-house specialist can then use the established guidelines with confidence when making recommendations.

Starter Equipment Guidelines

Looking for a simple solution now? Choose our basic off-the-shelf Starter Equipment Guidelines, which includes a general list of preferred ergonomic equipment specifications and ideal features, helping you begin the process of selecting and standardizing your equipment.
