Ergonomics provides workstation assessment, identification
of worksite risk factors and recommendations for ergonomic modifications.
We identify risk factors that contribute to Muscle-Skeletal Disorders
(MSDs), also known as Repetitive Strain Injuries. Our consulting
includes written reports of recommendations to assist with the
prevention of future MSDs. We work closely with human resources,
safety, engineering, employees, and management to achieve company-wide
success. We provide consultation on furniture and product purchases,
while upholding objectivity and professionalism: Pioneer Ergonomics
do not represent or sell any specific product line or vendor.
Pioneer Ergonomics consults with businesses on how to start formal
in-house ergonomics programs. This process starts with an analysis
of a company’s incidence rate for safety
management using the firm’s OSHA Form 300 human resources
log. Incidence rates are used to show the relative level of injuries
within a company and in comparison to other similar industries.
Because a common base and a specific period of time are involved,
these rate can help determine both problem areas and progress
in preventing work-related injuries and illnesses. Pioneer Ergonomics
uses statistics to compare injury rates to the Bureau of Labor
Statistics for that industry.
We use anthropometric
analysis (measurements of body size) to help make recommendations
for our clients. Anthropometry is used as a basis for designing
equipment, workstations and tools to reduce the incidence of repetitive
strain injuries. Pioneer Ergonomics consults in the office environment
as well as the industrial environment.
We provide Job Description
Development. Job Descriptions are used to analyze and define an
occupation in terms of the “essential functions” required
to perform that job. Having well-defined job descriptions helps
employers, vocational rehabilitation counselors, employees, and
physicians determine appropriate job placements that are safe
