Ergonomic Risk Controls

To prevent injuries and keep your people working effectively ergonomics risks need to be identified and resolved. Besides the fact that it is smart business practice WorkSafe BC makes it mandatory.  Chronic pain musculoskeletal injuries costs your business a lot money.  There are the visible, immediate and obvious costs but there are also the invisible long term costs that end up adding up.  WorkSafe BC estimates the invisible costs are 6:1 ratio compared to the visible costs.  Engineering controls are commonly the best but also the most expensive.  Many times you can make low cost changes that help reduce the risk of pain and injuries.  Our ergonomic risks assessments also include education to leave your people with the knowledge and tools to make adjustments themselves.  Much more than just an assessment. We leave your people motivated and self empowered.

In their words...

I couldn't be more pleased with my workspace assessment and your advice.  I've adopted several suggested changes, and am applying the principles.  I expect that the others in the Courtenay office feel this way too.  We feel are grateful for the time you gave us, and for your expertise.

Soma 4 Living Ergonomics Plus

From basic computer ergo risk assessments to Soma 4 Living's Workplace Warrior training’s.  

Soma 4 Living Ergo is way more than the standard ergonomics consulting.  We cover all the ergonomic risk & liability requirements but also help your people get engaged and feel like they have more control over their risks, pain and body.   Most ergonomists focus on the equipment.  The most important piece of equipment is your body, or your employees body.  It can't be replaced or upgraded like all the rest of the equipment.  

There are standard and visible ergonomic risks that anyone can find online or by speaking to an any ergonomist but there are also invisible risks that don't get identified because the professionals aren't looking for them.  They are invisible because they are so obvious and just taken for granted.  We look at big picture and the small details, teach your people how to be their own best expert and how to use their own gauges to become more self responsible.

Sometimes you have a critical window of opportunity.  When you invest the money in an ergonomic risk assessment and or training you want your people to come away with a new sense of safety, comfort, resilience and tools for improvement.  Make the most of that window of opportunity email us to find out more about Soma 4 Living ergonomic risk assessments and training.
