An ergonomic workstation is extremely valuable for businesses to provide for their employees in order to help prevent injuries. It does not only benefit the employees, however, it also benefits business owners.
An ergonomic workstation simply means that desks and the things on it are arranged in a way that prevents injuries and are well within reach and use. It also means that the workstation allows the employee to remain in good posture. Proper ergonomics plays a huge role in how well employees accomplish work and it also helps prevent suffering from work-related injuries caused by strain and overuse.
FTG Physical Therapy offers ergonomic assessments for employers so that the safety of your facility can be properly evaluated. Our experts will tour your facility to identify potential musculoskeletal risks that could be harmful to your employees. Solutions will be provided to address each of our findings to prevent any injuries.
There are many benefits for businesses to have an ergonomic assessment. These benefits include: reducing working compensation claims, improving employee morale, decreasing insurance premiums, increasing employee’s efficiency, reducing pain and medical expenses, and reducing exposure to legal liabilities.
