FOR ONE PERSON:
An ergonomic evaluation includes assessing the fit of the workstation to the worker, identifying the mismatches, and suggesting/recommending pertinent changes in the workstation and/or equipment needs and/or how the person performs their job tasks to reduce risks and improve worker comfort and productivity. This is appropriate for injury prevention, when symptoms first appear, or for someone returning to work after an injury.
GROUP TRAINING IN ERGONOMICS:
Group training works well for both office settings and for materials handling and physical labor jobs. The purpose of ergonomic training is to provide employees with practical, hands-on information they can use to reduce their risk for injury. Most training is designed for one-hour sessions; all are individualized to the client needs.
