How the Virtual Ergonomic Assessment Work? 

Employees will request a virtual ergonomic assessment by going to  Once on the website, they will see calendar with available 30 minute appointments and the ability to book their appointment.  Once the appointment is confirmed, the employee will be asked to e-mail a few pictures of themselves working within their environment.  The Ergonomic Evaluator will ask questions that will enable them to understand the employee’s current workstation, identify potential risks, and understand any discomfort and postural habits.

During the assessment, we ask that the employee has a tape measure, available as often we will need measurements of the height of the desk, seated elbow height and other measurements that make our recommendations most effective.

Virtual Ergonomic Evaluation Report with Recommendations

After the ergonomic assessment is completed, the ergo evaluator will complete a report that summarizes the risk factors identified, the suggested modifications with existing equipment and provide postural recommendations.
