Our Southern California Assessments Help Reduce the Risk of Musculoskeletal Disorders (MSDs)

Hospital workers who transfer or care for patients are at high risk for injury when not properly taught or when lacking the necessary tools to do the job the ergonomically correct way. Other healthcare workers are at risk due to awkward postures a job may require.

Generally speaking, working in awkward postures can lead to discomfort or pain. Whether you’re a nurse struggling to lift patients, work in an office and strain to look at your screen, or spend your day lifting boxes in the receiving department, discomfort and pain can lead to more chronic injuries that reduce productivity and can cost millions in Workers Comp claims. 

The great news is that our ergonomists take care of the Southern California Region and are able to provide evaluations, training, and products that create measurable changes. Even small changes can help drastically reduce risk. Whether it’s just knowing the right information, acquiring the proper equipment, or changing the entire process to be more ergonomic friendly, Pacific Ergonomics can help your employees be more comfortable, productive, and avoid a bigger issue.
