Technology has changed the way we work, live our lives and behave towards one another. Advancements have allowed us to flow between tasks and become more productive. We have moved from being a society dominated by manual labour to a more sedentary, thought driven culture, and this change has brought with it different challenges.
Ergonomics is about adapting the environment we find ourselves in to suit our needs. In the modern workplace, the Principles of Ergonomics can be applied to all areas of a company and to every individual within an organisation. At all levels of an organisation, employees can benefit from the knowledge of how to set up a workstation correctly and adopt a position which is beneficial to their overall health.
We are more than familiar with the standard ergonomics workstation assessment and its format. This is a tried and tested method but it is very time consuming. By harnessing the expertise of Physiotherapy and the advancements in technology, we have created a new approach. All categories laid out in Irish Legislation are covered, but we also carry out postural analysis and postural correction at the workstation. All the information given to the employee is backed up with an online report and a simple, individualised App Based Rehab Programme for the employee to keep.
By modernising the procedure and integrating the assessment with the knowledge of Physiotherapists, we have made the process far more interactive and effective. Our innovative solution will meet all of your organisation’s needs and much, much more.
Efficient and Fully Compliant Assessments
Our approach breaks the mould of the generic ergonomics assessment, while we also ensure it is fully compliant with the Safety, Health and Welfare at Work (General Application) Regulations 2007. The use of the commonly used Online Ergonomic System is not compliant with this and we do not advocate this approach. Our innovative assessment utilises technology to enhance the original format and improve the employee’s experience. By using technology to create a more efficient integrated assessment, we are able to gather more information and implement a greater change in a shorter time frame.
Digital Based Platform
Our innovative approach using a digital platform allows the assessment form to be accessed online while at the employee’s desk. All the information gathered by our assessors is input directly in situ, ensuring no more paper forms and inefficient storage of documents. By inputting and storing all of the information in one place, it allows us to coordinate, parse, and correlate the information with ease, and subsequently generate online reports, both at individual and organisational level.
Data Driven Approach
By gathering all the data in one place from the integrated assessment, it allows us to target problem areas and to reinforce the changes that were implemented. Our system can generate individual reports, but also reports on overall trends within an organisation along with follow up recommendations. This efficient process allows the organisation to make data driven decisions specific to their needs, whilst ensuring the proficient use of resources available.
