Risk Mitigation Strategy/ Solution Development/ Design Assistance
An ergonomic impact assessment can provide the pros and cons on proposed changes on a workstation or process line, thus preventing operational mis-matches, loss in productivity and expensive post-implementation ‘make-a-plan’ solutions.
Ergofocus can also 'clear the forest' regarding marketing and sales talks, and evaluate and advise regarding what solutions would work best for you, based on scientific evidence which can be relayed back to management.
ErgoFocus can advise as a SPECIALIST and/ or EVALUATE (proposed) designs, ASSIST in Design and SOURCE Equipment (solutions) for a client. This can be achieved as part of a project team and/or on an ad hoc, or fixed term basis. By ensuring that ergonomic aspects will be integrated in the development of your solution/ design and adhering to norms and regulations where applicable (e.g. ISO norms), we can prevent expensive post-implementation design adaptations or even worse, increased risks in of developing WMSDs. Whether it will be a process line, or activities in a coal mine, Ergofocus has broad experience in various industries.
Applying ergonomic principles in the design process can prevent negative effects such as:
- delays in projects
- a lower productivity will be prevented due to unforeseen operational circumstances
- extra costs for adaptation
- a lower design quality
- increase in waste
- decreased usability
