Industrial Ergonomics

Industrial environments vary from factories with hundreds of operators performing short-cycle jobs to field personnel conducting non-routine tasks. Our team of experts in ergonomics, physiotherapist, health safety and environment are experienced in finding practical solutions to ergonomics challenges and can teach you to spot and resolve developing ergonomics concerns by providing the tools and techniques to identify issues, prioritize challenges, and implement low-cost, high-impact solutions.

Why “Industrial Ergonomics Training” Matters

Ergonomics is the science of modifying jobs to fit the capabilities of the people who do them. Work-related MSDs result when there is a mismatch between the physical capability of workers and the physical demands of their jobs. Ergonomics helps resolve this mismatch.

Ergonomics helps reduce MSDs that can result when the worker’s job requires repetitive reaching, using forceful exertions, bending and lifting, working with vibrating equipment, or other repetitive motions.

Ergonomic engineering controls may change the design of a workstation, a production line, or the way a job is performed for the purpose of reducing MSDs.

Ergonomics may introduce safe work practices, such as providing alternative tasks or allowing workers to rotate through different types of jobs throughout the day, so that their exposure to risk factors is reduced.

Finally, ergonomic personal protective equipment (PPE) may be used to provide additional protection from MSDs.
