Ergonomics & Employment Screening
If you need us for more advanced ergonomics consulting, we have the skill and resources.
Ergonomics and physical ability job testing are not mutually exclusive. As the graph below developed by Dr. Richard Wyatt reflects, eliminating musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) from the workplace is most effective through the combination of aggressive ergonomics interventions
and physically matching the abilities of employees to the physical demands of their jobs (individual coping skills).
As more effective ergonomics interventions are employed, risk factors are reduced, and a larger labor pool can be matched to physical job demands. These risk factors include exposures to repetitive motion, high force, contact stress and overexertion demands. As applicants for physically demanding jobs are properly matched to the work demands, their ability to meet or exceed these demands is equalized.
Although both ergonomic interventions and physical abilities matching do have individual benefits, the most effective method of reducing risk is a combination of the two.
CRT's ergonomic consulting services are practically unlimited. Our ergonomic consulting network of experts includes nearly every professional certification and credential relevant to ergonomics to include: Ph.D., M.D., M.S., P.T., O.T. , CSP and P.E.
CRT' s consulting fees are very competitive with hourly rates beginning under $100/hour. The level of expertise, number of consultants, project scope, and priority determine individual project rates.
