Ergonomics Consulting Services

One of the most common accidents for healthcare professionals relates to strenuous movement and overexertion. Musculoskeletal disorders occur quickly and correlate to injury, illness and inefficiencies across your company.

Eliminating ergonomic risks and reducing opportunities for them to occur can result in lower workers' compensation costs and associated liabilities. 1Source helps businesses address ergonomic needs to reduce workplace injuries. However, before 1Source can implement an ergonomics strategy, it's important to understand what the term means.

What Is Ergonomics?

Ergonomics uses technology and methods to reduce worker discomfort and promote workplace efficiency. Ergonomic functions are designed with human safety in mind.

Issues behind safety at work can be as simple as eye strain after a long day or wrist or neck pain from typing. Ergonomics considers movement, actions and processes that take place throughout the workday to reduce these health and safety concerns. Does your company have the proper tools to keep employees from experiencing harm?

Ergonomic Risks in the Workplace

Ergonomic risks are a top factor in the onset of musculoskeletal disorders. These are life-changing conditions that affect the muscles, nerves, ligaments, tendons and blood vessels. Some common examples of musculoskeletal disorders include the following:

  • Tendinitis
  • Carpal tunnel syndrome
  • Strains
  • Back injuries
  • Epicondylitis

Companies often forget that workplace injuries are avoidable when you consider suitable jobs for your staff. You can reduce the number of workplace injuries when you ensure employees can complete tasks both efficiently and safely.

Business owners are responsible for their workers and the actions they take. 1Source will educate your business on how to provide ergonomics training to your team, clients and patients.

Encourage your employees to voice their opinions about the tools and resources they need to perform daily job tasks. This will allow 1Source to identify ergonomic problems and correct safety hazards at the source.
