Ergonomic workstation evaluations for the workplace.

Why Are Workstation Evaluations Necessary?
Workstation evaluations are a great way to start a comprehensive ergonomics program. They are personalized, addressing a worker's set up, concerns and questions on an individual basis. A workstation evaluation can solve some basic issues and prevent new problems from occurring in the future.
What can you expect from workstation evaluations?
The goal is to determine the correct fit for each worker and alleviate any aches, pains or complaints about the work area. It may require several visits to get there, as a "try this for awhile" philosophy is the best route to success. Because everyone is different, we use guidelines based on our training, not strict rules. We understand that reactions will vary, so the evaluation process will continue as bodies need time to adjust. We will continue to make minor adjustments in the workstation until a correct fit is achieved.
Finding a customized solution and creating a healthy environment is what Ergonomic Evolution is all about.
