Ergonomics involves altering workstation and workplace design to fit each employee’s need. Proper ergonomic design helps employees avoid repetitive strains and the long-term disabilities that may develop when working in a poorly designed workspace.
Body Align therapists provide businesses with ergonomic consultations to reduce work-related injuries and improve employee productivity. Our therapists will visit businesses on-site to assess workplace design and develop an ergonomic program tailored to the facility. We also offer ergonomic training sessions and presentations to inform employees on proper ergonomic practices and ways to fight office fatigue.
Most recommendations are not cost-prohibitive and can be as simple as providing an ergonomically-designed chair or storing materials in a more easy-to-reach place. These simple changes can help reduce costly workers’ compensation claims, as well as higher workers’ compensation insurance premiums. Contact Body Align if you would like to speak about developing an ergonomic program for your workplace.
