Ergonomics | Worksite Evaluations
Therapists at MaineHealth offer worksite evaluations and ergonomics training. They evaluate the worker at the workplace and in the work environment. Our goal is to identify the risks that lead to injury, lost work time and lower productivity.
What is a worksite evaluation?
The therapist conducts interviews to learn about the job and any risks at work. The therapist watches the employee do the job. The therapist then offers ways to prevent or stop problems and ergonomic risks. Ergonomic risks are workplace conditions that may lead to injury. A worksite evaluation can include ergonomics training. Ask your provider about an appointment. You will need a referral for treatment.
