Ergonomics is the science of optimising the interaction between a person and their environment. Ergonomics can be helpful in reducing the risk of injuries and in improving workplace safety and productivity.
An ergonomic assessment can be employed as a proactive method of ensuring injuries do not occur, or, implemented as a component of a return to work accommodation plan.
Our experienced kinesiologists have performed ergonomic assessments for warehouses, corporate offices, construction sites, industrial buildings, public institutions, and manufacturing facilities across Canada.
