Ergonomics Consultancy

The overall goal of the ergonomics consultancy is to provide information that will facilitate the development of an environment that enhances both staff performances as well as their well-being. It aims to reduce the potential for on-job-injuries and consequent costs to the organisation in terms of lost time at work and medical treatment. It also encourages an awareness of safe work practices in the workplace.


Different services, either individually or as a package, are available to target the different stages and needs of an organisation:


1.    Staff Comfort-Level Survey (Symptom Survey)
This survey is to gather and analyse the subjective comfort level of the employees in a particular job or task. From the survey, we will be able to provide information on your employees’ health profile. We recommend that the survey covers all the employees or an appropriate sample representative of the organisation.



2.    On-site Assessment

This involves analysis of the workstations and environment to identify ergonomic hazards and risk factors that may lead to the occurrence of musculoskeletal disorders. The analysis is done through observation, measurements and checklists to compose a list of ergonomic risk factors associated with specific job or tasks. Following the assessment, on-site feedback or a report (at additional charges) will be provided to highlight cost-effective recommendations on workstation designs and ways of alleviating and preventing work-related musculoskeletal disorders.



3.    Post-Assessment Follow-up

  • Comfort Level Survey: Can be conducted 6 months after implementation of the changes and training to measure the outcome of the program.
  • Follow-up Consultation: Can be scheduled to re-evaluate recommendations and changes to ensure that the implementations do not have a negative impact on other aspects of the job.
