We help to promote employee wellbeing, increase efficiency, decrease the risk of injuries, reduce claims and boost productivity all by empowering employees to adopt an ergonomic ethos for the long term. Our assessments ensure workstation ergonomics create an optimal match between employees, their work and the equipment they use.

Our professionals assess, with fresh eyes, all types of individual workplace ergonomic set ups on site and recommend changes or adjustments in line with ergonomic principles – from office workstations to vehicle set ups. Our services range from simple ergonomic assessments to more comprehensive consultations for those experiencing pain or symptoms. Altius Group also offers treatment plans for physical concerns relating to workplace ergonomics.

Our ergonomic assessments are thorough and if required, we provide assistive ergonomic recommendations. Determined by the individual, the organisation and the work performed, our assessment and recommendations may include:

  • An assessment of task requirements, worker capacity and abilities and the overall organisation of work.
  • Careful observation and discussion with workers as well as reviewing any information on hand such as accident, injury and illness statistics and data on productivity.
  • An assessment of workplace equipment design in relation to how it matches work requirements and whether it enables an employee to work healthily and efficiently.
  • An objective evaluation of hazards and risks within the workplace, such as noise, poor visibility and environmental conditions.
  • A closer look at tasks with high repetition, at work performed over an extended duration as well as any task requiring a level of force.
  • Identifying and correcting poor postures, through education. Our team assesses overhead stretching/stooping/reaching, kneeling, crouching, asymmetrical activities.
  • A discussion of cognitive demands, such as new technology and responsibilities.
  • Recommendations for change and ongoing support to ensure ergonomic adjustments are adopted for the longer term.
  • More comprehensive assessments may be recommended to those experiencing pain or symptoms, or those likely to experience issues in future.
