With a workplace assessment you can prevent or reduce complaints.
If employees perform intensive repetitive work, sit at a screen for a long time or have to deal with physical strain, there is an increased risk of arm, neck, back or shoulder complaints. And existing complaints can also get worse. By ensuring a well-designed and safe workplace and healthy working habits, you promote productivity and reduce the risk of absenteeism.
What is a workplace assessment?
In a workplace assessment we combine ergonomic research and setting up a workplace with practical advice on improving posture, work habits and work behaviour.
Increased vitality in the workplace. Reintegration. Reduce absenteeism. You and your employee are aware of the risks, know which ergonomic and behavioural measures are appropriate, and have the practical information to implement them. Complaints due to physical strain, incorrect posture, or repetitive movements are reduced or prevented.
This is what a workplace assesment looks like
- Personal introduction to the employee and assessment of the complaint (s).
- Analysis of the employee’s work habits and ergonomic conditions
- Ergonomic adjustment of the workplace.
- Practicing beneficial work habits, such as efficient use of muscles, less stress on joints, and variation in postures.
- Discuss options for applying advice and exercises.
We report the results of the workplace assesment to the employer and the employee. In the report, we also include personal advice on improving posture (illustrated with photos) and work habits, the ergonomic setting of the workplace, and any obstacles.
Within two weeks of the workplace assessment, an evaluation with the employee takes place. If necessary, we will come by again.
