ErgoPartners promotes a team approach to ergonomics and health and safety to help our clients reduce the risks and costs associated with musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and Repetitive Movement Injuries (RMIs). To ensure we are best serving our clients, you will work with an Ergonomist that has expertise in your industry, but you will always be supported by our entire team to ensure the best outcome.
Defined as the science of fitting a workplace to the user’s needs, ergonomics aims to increase efficiency and productivity and reduce discomfort.
Think about the angle of your computer monitor, or the height of your desk. Think about whether your eyes are strained by the end of the day or if your wrists hurt from typing. A sound understanding of ergonomics can prevent most workplace injuries by adjusting tools to the user, putting an emphasis on proper posture to reduce the impact of repetitive movements.
The use of computers and rapidly changing technology in the modern workplace has greatly increased the need for ergonomics. Desks, chairs, monitors, keyboards and lighting all need to be assessed when creating a workspace, whether it is at the office or at home.
Ergonomics also takes into account the need for movement throughout the day. Office furniture has traditionally encouraged stiff, fixed postures and little movement. However, a balance between sitting and standing, which can be aided with a height-adjustable desk, is a proven way to combat the effects of sedentary workplace behavior.
All of ErgoPartners' work tools are inherently ergonomic. They are created to be intuitive and adjust effortlessly to the user. Our solutions are created to promote daily movement and physical activity, while supporting the user’s posture.
ErgoPartners tailor ergonomics programs to your staff’s needs and goals for a true return on investment.
We employ a six-phase approach to program implementation that we tailor for your facility and workspaces.
Learn more about the process by clicking on each phase below.
Our first step is to simply become immersed in your organizations’ current needs and challenges. Together, we engage key stakeholders, elevate awareness of best practices and outline a framework for the implementation of a sustainable ergonomics program.
Next, we investigate key areas or concern. Our team of board certified ergonomists will document and analyze site trends, evaluate existing design standards and review your current program. From there, we will work a cost effective strategy to reduce risk and improve employee comfort and health.
Successful action plans require realistic program objectives and timelines. Together we formulate an approach by defining short and long-term goals, leveraging available resources and outlining stakeholder responsibilities.
Employee training, assessment, and workstation enhancement form the core of our implementation process. Interactive group training sessions and individualized assessments elevate awareness of proper configuration, improve posture, and reduce employee discomfort. Our certification program in office ergonomics builds in-house expertise of the assessment process and becomes a first line of defense for preventing workplace injuries.
In an effort to gauge the effectiveness of specific program components, we track and analyze a variety of data sets and performance indicators. This process enables our team to make informed program suggestions that will lead to further process improvements.
Program maintenance is critical for continued success. In this phase, our team is a resource for recurring training, assessment support and program guidance. As your organization shifts employees between facilities or acquires additional facilities, we work to ensure that consistent workstation design and training strategies are implemented throughout.
Our team of experts takes comfort seriously and believes in promoting best practice to make your workplace or home office as healthy as it can be. Knowing how to properly set up a workspace in an ergonomically sound way is vital. ErgoPartners is the pioneer of office ergonomics, we are continuously contributing to and creating research on the topic.
