Virtual At-Home
Ergonomic Assessments

PWSGC has revised the NMSO E60ZH-190000/009/ZH to incorporate Virtual Home Ergonomic Assessments. Auspice Safety Inc is an approved supplier to offer Virtual Home Ergonomic Assessments to all the employees within every department, agency and crown corporation.

Each session would be no more than 30 minutes, the ergonomic assessors would go over the proper setup, positions and postures so the employees can adjust their home offices. The employees would need either FaceTime / Skype to facilitate the virtual ergonomic assessment.

Ergonomic Assessments
From the Safety Pros

An ASI ergonomic assessment digs deep. Our professionals
come to your workplace to perform a thorough, in-depth
analysis of workers’ job tasks and their working
environments.

We interview personnel to hear about their workplace
challenges and study their movements on the job. This
combines to give you a better, more accurate and
extremely thorough ergonomic assessment.

Once we complete the ergonomic assessment, we issue a full
report on our findings. This report uncovers workplace
ergonomic strengths and weaknesses, makes
recommendations for change in workplace ergonomics,
and even suggests partners that can supply the furniture
or other materials needed to implement improvements
based on the ergonomic assessment.

Frequently AskedQuestions

Our ergonomic assessments are a comprehensive and objective study of how employees work. We use these assessments to identify ergonomic risks such as repetitive tasks that can lead to strains or other repeated stress related injuries, improper setup of work areas, and the improper use of tools which can lead to musculoskeletal disorders.

Yes, they do. Employers in Canada are required to ensure that their workplace, workspaces and procedures meet provincial occupational health and safety standards. This includes any machinery, equipment or tools that are required for employees to complete their daily job duties.

There are six main categories of risk factors that contribute to ergonomic injuries in the workplace.

  • Forceful exertions
  • Awkward work postures
  • Localized contact stresses
  • Whole-body or segmental vibration
  • Temperature extremes
  • Repetitive motions or prolonged activities

These factors are the main contributors to ergonomics injuries and disorders such as lower back pain, tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome, strains and sprains and more.

A virtual ergonomic assessment follows the same principles and procedures as a workplace assessment, but is specially tailored to employees who work from home. Through a virtual consultation, we will have you show us your home office workspace and discuss opportunities to improve the ergonomics of your home office set-up which you can then bring to your employer.

Absolutely not. In fact, ergonomics is important for workers in all industries. Warehouse workers, office workers, construction workers, and manufacturing workers all have to deal with ergonomic risk factors, and they experience them all to different degrees.

For example, an office worker might be affected more by awkward work postures if they sit in a chair with poor posture for the majority of their work day, while a manufacturing worker who works a machine press might be more affected by repetitive motions or prolonged activity.

Both kinds of workers need to be concerned about these things to preserve their health and prevent workplace injuries or disorders.

Think prevention. Take control of
musculoskeletal health outcomes.
