Rehabilitation at work
Ergoplus can conduct a visit to a client’s work-site in order to assess critical job demands and identify risk factors that need to be addressed for improved work functioning. Ergonomic Assessments are a vital part of this, and enable both employers and clients to prevent the onset of pain due to work duties or to support an injured employee maximise comfort at their workstation. This includes examining the design of the work area, ease of movement, positioning of equipment, lighting and seating posture, as well as providing advice onsafe work practices and modification of existing equipment to reduce the risk of developing musculoskeletal disorders. Assessments are done individually and emphasise the importance of stretching and breaks. Many injuries can be prevented by adjusting, modifying or rearranging existing furniture or equipment and a comfortable workspace aids in reducing injury and maximising productivity.
