If equipment is needed, a follow-up session is recommended to ensure your employee learns to use the equipment in accordance to ergonomic principles.

A written summary report is generated for each ergonomic assessment performed.

So glad that Serafine was able to use Zoom to do a virtual ergonomic assessment! Setting up the right position in my new makeshift home office so that I would not experience neck, lower back or wrist pain was a priority … I am so appreciative that it felt like Serafine was sitting next to me and came up with the right position to ensure I works be pain-free and comfortable!
