Evaluating Workplace Ergonomics in Sacramento, CA

VSI offers several types of evaluations of workplace ergonomics near Sacramento, CA, including:

Proactive and New Hire Orientation (PRO)

The PRO is a cost-effective approach for your company and is appropriate for individuals who are not currently experiencing any physical discomfort. This is used as a proactive measure for employees to ensure that their workstation is arranged appropriately to fit their stature. (Assessment: ~30 minutes)

Preventative (PREE)

During the PREE, the ergonomist fully investigates the work environment and workplace ergonomics to develop employee-specific recommendations based on root cause analysis. This in-depth assessment is primarily used as a preventative measure for employees that have experienced physical discomfort but have not filed a worker's compensation claim. (Assessment: ~45 to 60 minutes)

Worker's Compensation (WC)

For employees that have filed a WC claim due to experienced work-related physical discomfort. The WC includes an in-depth root cause analysis, adjustments, and site-specific recommendations to mitigate ergonomic risk exposure. The WC includes employee history, functional limitations, in-person follow-ups to gauge employee wellness and direct liaison with all members of the treatment team. (Assessment: ~60-90 minutes)
