Ergonomic Risk Assessment

Workplace assessment to promote a healthy, productive workforce

Ergonomics aims to optimize workplace processes, tools, systems and set-ups so that employees can work efficiently and experience less stress and fewer injuries, including Muscoloskeletal Disorders (MSDs). An objective ergonomic assessment of your employees’ work environment can help support their health and productivity.

Recognizing the importance of a well-designed workplace, our experts provide ergonomic risk assessments supported by digital technologies for greater flexibility and precision. With the DEKRA Safety Platform (DSP), we are able to conduct remote, global ergonomic assessments to evaluate where and how employees work, both on company premises and in home offices.
Whether assessments take place in-person or virtually, the data collected can be analyzed and visualized on the DSP according to client specifications. Decision makers can then view trends, formulate an action plan and allocate resources wisely.
