Worksite Ergonomics Assessment
Many office workers mistakenly believe they are immune to injuries due to the seemingly "light" nature of their work. However, they are vulnerable to Occupational Overuse Injuries, which encompass various diagnoses like tendonitis (e.g. golfer's elbow, tennis elbow), carpal tunnel syndrome, and nerve impingements. By ensuring the proper setup of the office environment and incorporating regular micro-breaks and stretches into their routine tasks, office workers can significantly decrease the likelihood of experiencing these injuries.
Apricus Health offers individual workstation assessments, group ergonomic screening and education sessions targeted at office ergonomics.
We focus on designing effective workspace ergonomics programs to maximise efficient use of workspaces, optimise postures while performing work tasks and to enable optimal productivity.
Prior to delivering an ergonomic education session, an Apricus Health Therapist will visit your workplace and identify environmental and physical issues that may contribute to, or cause, employee discomfort, pain or injury.
Ergonomic Education Sessions
When you prioritize an injury prevention education session, your organization is making a valuable investment in its most important asset: its people. Our Workplace Health and Wellness team specializes in delivering educational sessions to your employees, promoting healthy and safe workplace practices.
These sessions are fully customizable to cater to your specific requirements. Some general topics that can be covered include:
- Hand, arm and shoulder injury prevention
- Spinal care and core strength, manual handling and stretching
- Wellness in the workplace
- Warm up for work and/or stretching
- Computer workstation injury prevention
Functional Capacity Evaluations
Apricus Health provides Functional Capacity Assessments and Ergonomic Evaluations to identify the underlying causes and potential risks of workplace injuries, enabling us to develop a comprehensive prevention plan. These assessments are designed to evaluate the suitability of prospective candidates or injured workers in performing specific job tasks based on their role requirements. This may involve conducting cardiovascular fitness tests, screening joint range of motion, and assessing postural tolerances. Following the assessment, our therapists compile a thorough report that outlines the worker's current functional capacity and compares it with the demands of their job.
