Group Ergonomic Assessments
Booking a group ergonomic assessment is ideal for companies who have recently moved into a new office space or have a number of employees who have not previously had an ergonomic assessment.
An occupational therapist will conduct a 20-minute assessment at each individual’s workspace, making adjustments along the way to enhance the employee’s overall comfort and well-being.
Post-assessment, each employee will receive an individualized 12-point checklist detailing the changes made to their set up and any equipment recommendations that will further enhance the comfort and usability of their workspace.
A copy of this can also be provided to HR, the office manager or individual booking the assessment to ensure there is an understanding of how the recommended equipment would benefit the employee and approximate costs associated with ordering the equipment.
Cost: $125.00 per person when booked for a minimum of 3 employees at a time
