Reducing Workplace Risk

Poor ergonomic design and layout of work areas are a major contributor to musculoskeletal strains and sprains. WFR offers comprehensive services focused on reducing ergonomic risk in the workplace via assessment services. These include:

Job Task Ergonomic Assessments

Job Role Profiling is an independent observation and assessment of different job roles to understand the hazards and risks that are present for each role in the business. JRP’s are collated to form a Job Role Dictionary, which could be utilised in recruitment, development of return to work processes, hazard identification, risk management and more.

Ergonomic Task Analyses are a more in-depth observation and assessment of a job role or task and are typically conducted to investigate an incident or injury. Following the assessment, WFR compile a Risk Analysis Report which identifies and assesses all risk factors, and then utilises a Hierarchy of Control process to recommend ways to mitigate the risks of the task or role.


Office Ergonomics

Workstation Ergonomic Assessments are 20-30 minute individual consultations at their office workstation, assessing and educating on the physical and human factors of the work environment – such as the chair, desk items and IT hardware positioning. Individual or group reports can be provided, outlining any areas for concern and recommendations for workstations assessed.

To assist with ownership and sustainability of the office ergonomic process, WFR offers comprehensive Ergonomic Assessor Training workshops to provide the extra knowledge required to play this role.

Finally, Work Healthy, Stay Healthy™ has been developed to educate the office-based employee on managing the physical and mental aspects of their job role. The workshop has a comprehensive focus on workstation ergonomics, postural awareness, vision health, nutrition and stress management.
