Discovery Ergonomic Assessment
No matter WHERE you are in the US & Canada. Or WHERE you are in your “Ergolution,” Alter Ergo can help guide you and your team toward a safer workplace and a healthier lifestyle.
It all starts with a basic assessment to determine your ergonomic goals.
During your in-person or virtual ergonomic assessment, solution and/or program, one of our certified ergonomic assessment specialists will review and discuss the findings as they relate to your workplace. We will customize solutions, such as modifying your workplace or providing furniture recommendations, to get your team’s environment and techniques back on track.
Maintenance with Follow-up
Finally, we will meet with you again within 30 days of your ergonomic assessment to evaluate your progress. If a large ergonomic program is best for you, we will remain in contact throughout the entire process. We’ll make sure your custom plan has been successful in replacing bad habits with positive ones. If necessary, we’ll make slight adjustments at that time.
