Workplace Assessment

We are able to provide a workplace assessment for your workplace to optimize injury management and reduce injury risk. 

Risk assessment:

Identification and ranking of worker risks observable within the workplace. This may involve risks associated with exertion, postures, repetition, duration of tasks, etc. Resultantly, strategies to be encouraged/implemented by the Physiotherapist to both educate and empower workers to be self-aware of risks and responsible regarding the risks of such. The aims of the risk-assessment will be to reduce injury risk and optimize injury management within the workplace, improve worker performance and potentially boost profitability, raise worker morale and instil greater health literacy and self-empowerment within workers. Ultimately, we want to avoid the productivity and financial loss associated with worker injury, and counter this with improved worker output as result of injury risk mitigation though improved strength, conditioning and flexibility or workers, as well as greater health literacy and empowerment – boosting morale and performance.

Implementation of safer ergonomic set-up/movement procedure:

As result of the risk-assessment completed during the workplace walk-through/observation completed by the Physiotherapist, which will give the Physiotherapist an initial understanding into the tasks and roles of workers. Resultantly, both identification of risks associated with ergonomic set-up’s and movements will be identified with resultant strategies to be implemented for injury-risk mitigation.


As per the identified commonly completed tasks of the workers, a warm-up protocol is to be developed and implemented among the workers in order to provide activation of appropriate muscle groups as well as commonly performed movement patterns. The aim will be that the workers become self-empowering with completion of the program in order to develop into a daily routine.

Strengthening procedure/program

Similarly, as per the identified commonly completed tasks of the workers, an appropriate strength & conditioning program will be developed for the workers to develop appropriate muscle groups, movement patterns, and act as injury prevention to mitigate injury risk. While generic in nature and aimed to be completed across workers, the program will have the power to be adapted to all levels of fitness and ability. The program will take into consideration both the space and equipment availability of the workplace.

Strategy for measurement and reassessment/injury surveillance

While providing a risk-assessment, advice/strategy around ergonomic and movement procedures, a warm-up and strength & conditioning program for workers, we want to be able to track the effectiveness of these strategies through pre-screening measurements of workers to be able to track change over time. While this will be tailored more specifically after the initial assessment of the workplace – this may include the likes of grip strength, core and trunk endurance, shoulder strength & mobility, etc. Following in the future, improvements in pre-screening measurements as well as reduced rates of injury within the workplace will enable us to identify areas these implementations have been effective, as well as guide adjustments for future management and intervention.
