A workplace assessment examines the place where you work, your duties and capabilities. It involves ergonomic and safety risk assessments to identify causes for aggravating injuries and potential health hazards. In order to provide a safe working environment, a workplace assessment offers recommendations to eliminate any potential hazards and improve the workplace, encouraging productivity. In addition, it is a useful tool in ensuring a safe and therapeutic environment for those who have undergone extensive therapeutic procedures, by complementing occupational rehabilitation and return to work plan. In aid of people with specific needs or disabilities, work assessment services help establish a suitable working environment and source suitable duties.
