What is a Workplace Assessment?

It is an assessment of the area that your employee works in and the tasks that they carry out, relative to their personal abilities.

The aim of the assessment is to identify and analyse any risk factors which may be causing current or future health problems, or may be reducing work performance.

Risk factors may be related to:

  • Posture
  • Design of the work area
  • Design of equipment
  • Design of the job and the way in which it is carried out.

It is a legal requirement that employees are provided with a safe workplace.

Why consider an independent assessment

An experienced ergonomic assessor is likely to be needed when your own assessment methods are incomplete or ineffective. For example “other priorities” may prevent timely assessment, or you may hold insufficient assessors in house.

In addition, an independent advisor is particularly beneficial when you have staff with pre-existing injuries or those at risk of developing problems, to provide expert analysis and advice.

Ergo at Work Ltd is not affiliated with any product suppliers as we believe that it is important to be fully independent.
