Ergonomic Risk Assessment Giving You a Roadmap for Ergonomic Changes

An Ergonomic Risk Assessment observes, documents, and analyzes the intricate details of a job or process in order to decrease the potential for or severity of work-related injuries.

These are most effective when performed and overseen by a Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE). After the assessment, a Fit For Work CPE will combine the data from the Ergonomic Risk Assessment with the findings from the Physical Demands Analysis to craft solutions within a process or the greater working environment.

The goals of an Ergonomic Risk Assessment are twofold.

The first goal is to decrease the potential for and severity of work-related injury due to any of the following factors:

  • Awkward and/or static postures
  • Contact stress
  • Repetition
  • Vibration
  • Fatigue
  • Forces

The second goal is to reduce the physical demands required of the essential functions of the job via engineering controls, administrative controls, and/or behavioral controls, allowing employers to expand their candidate pool.


Why this solution from Fit For Work?

Where the Physical Demands Analysis quantifies the job, the Ergonomic Risk Assessment provides a highly visual, intuitive roadmap for implementing ergonomic changes, thus making it easy for your business to take the next step toward lowering ergonomic risk and making a difference for your employees.
