OUR CONSULTING SERVICES

Humanscale Consulting tailor ergonomics programs to your staff’s needs and goals for a true return on investment. We employ a six-phase approach to program implementation that we tailor for your facility and workspaces:

Engage
Our first step is to simply become immersed in your organizations’ current needs and challenges. Together, we engage key stakeholders, elevate awareness of best practices and outline a framework for the implementation of a sustainable ergonomics programme.
Evaluate
Next, we investigate key areas or concern. Our team of board certified ergonomists will document and analyse site trends, evaluate existing design standards and review your current program. From there, we will work a cost effective strategy to reduce risk and improve employee comfort and health.
Plan
Successful action plans require realistic programme objectives and timelines. Together we formulate an approach by defining short and long-term goals, leveraging available resources and outlining stakeholder responsibilities.
Implement
Employee training, assessment, and workstation enhancement form the core of our implementation process. Interactive group training sessions and individualised assessments elevate awareness of proper configuration, improve posture, and reduce employee discomfort. Our certification programme in office ergonomics builds in-house expertise of the assessment process and becomes a first line of defense for preventing workplace injuries.
Measure
In an effort to gauge the effectiveness of specific programme components, we track and analyse a variety of data sets and performance indicators. This process enables our team to make informed program suggestions that will lead to further process improvements.
Support
Programme maintenance is critical for continued success. In this phase, our team is a resource for recurring training, assessment support and program guidance. As your organisation shifts employees between facilities or acquires additional facilities, we work to ensure that consistent workstation design and training strategies are implemented throughout.
