What is an Ergonomic Self-Assessment?

An Ergonomic Self-Assessment is an opportunity to be guided through an assessment of your current workstation wherever that may be – at home or in the office. This is carried out using Fit for Works virtual self-assessment tool.

The user is taken through a step by step evaluation, the same as they would be during an in-person evaluation. The evaluation provides real time advice and education on setting up a chair, desk and all other equipment used while working.

Once completed, the software will generate an individualized report with adjustments recommended to the user’s workstation throughout the evaluation. The report will also include ergonomics accessories that may improve the user’s posture at their workstation and a printable ‘cheat sheet’ with recommended stretches and desk setup which can be placed on the user’s desk as a reminder.

Who is the assessment for?

This self-assessment tool works well for both individuals and companies.

For those who are self-employed, work remotely or work at an office without an on-site Ergonomist, optimising your workstation ergonomics can be an easy and accessible task. This self-assessment tool is exactly what you need.
