Interface Analysis can help your company to conduct Ergonomics Assessment and Ergonomics Training.
Employers are always faced with the tradeoff between efficiency and productivity vs. employee safety and comfort. The good news is that they do not have to be a tradeoff. Rather, good ergonomic assessment and remedial design can also result in improved efficiency and productivity. Employees' time away from work due to injury reduces productivity, awkward equipment and procedures reduces efficiency, and violation of "compliance" requirements can certainly affect the bottom line. Creating an ergonomically effective workplace results in employee safety while increasing efficiency and productivity.
Interace Analysis / Usernomics can assist your company with ergonomic assessment, workplace design improvements, and staff training. We use quantitative techniques to evaluate the workplace and determine those areas that will most benefit from design and placement changes. Once the critical ergonomic hot spots have been identified and evaluated, we can re-design the problem areas to maximize the ergonomic impact. Finally, we can train your staff to self-monitor and regulate their ergonomic environment. The objective is to meet compliance requirements while increasing safety, efficiency, and productivity.
We apply a rigorous and systematic approach to ergonomic assessment, design, and training. Our assessment and design culminates in empirical testing to ensure that all recommendations result in maximizing safety, efficiency, productivity, and compliance. Our Ergonomics Design is distinguished by our additional expertise in user interface design, instructional design, and usability testing.
A well designed workplace is one that considers all aspects of the users environment so that it "fits the user like a glove." We apply a user-centered approach to workplace ergonomics to ensure that the users' biometric, physiologic, and ergonomic needs are achieved in the users' work environment - taken as a whole.
It is important to note that Interface Analysis / Usernomics does not sell ergonomic products, but will provide suggested products based on our independent analysis and empirical research.
Our staff specializes in engineering psychology, human factors and ergonomics. Each discipline contributes to the ergonomic assessment, design, and training process. This multi-discipline approach permits us to view ergonomics in each of its component parts. The result is greater assurance that your workplace will meet regulatory requirements while increasing safety, efficiency, and productivity.
