Atlantic Environmental, Inc. offers Ergonomics and Human Factors consulting to commercial, industrial and government organizations regardless of size. Our team presents a full range of service to protect the safety and health of workers and increase productivity.

Ergonomics is the science of designing the workplace, and keeping in mind the capabilities and limitations of the worker. Poor worksite design leads to fatigued, frustrated, and hurting workers. This rarely leads to the most productive employee. More likely, it leads to a painful and costly injury, absenteeism, lower productivity, and poor product quality. Injuries that may arise and cause startling costs to an employer are musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), including tendonitis, carpal tunnel syndrome (CTS) and back pain.

We can evaluate offices, manufacturing, material handling, and service industries for activities that can—or have—produced Human Factors injuries such as Carpal Tunnel Syndrome (CTS), Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSD) and back injuries, in the work environment.dreamstime_m_67542352

Ergonomics makes sense, both logically and monetarily. Early action is particularly important when addressing MSDs because they tend to be treatable and less expensive in the early stages but irreversible and very expensive later.

An Ergonomics written evaluation can be completed for an office setting, laboratory, manufacturing (production, packaging, line assembly, warehousing), and welding. Education doesn’t have to stop either in the workplace. By learning to identify and understand Ergonomic risk factors, information may be helpful during traveling, using your laptop at home, or even when using your cell phone.

Atlantic Environmental, Inc. can meet with you and spend time with your employees at their job site to conduct a preventative or comprehensive ergonomic evaluation. This will include:

Preventative Ergonomic Evaluation:

  • 35 to 40 minute one-on-one evaluation
  • employee ergonomic education
  • workstation measurements that include desktop, chair, and monitor height to establish the correct fit between the employee and their office furnituredreamstime_m_32099479
  • identification of ergonomic risk factors (if any)
  • recommendations for equipment and workstation adjustments (if needed) in the employee’s workstation
  • written documentation of our findings and our recommendations

Comprehensive Ergonomic Evaluation

  •  60 to 75 minute one-on-one evaluation
  • employee ergonomic education
  • interview discussing employee physical discomfort, concerns, and medical history (when applicable)
  • workstation measurements (specific to work area) to establish the correct fit between the employee and their work environment
  • identification of ergonomic risk factors (if any)
