Worksite Assessments

Create a safer, happier, more productive work environment

It’s amazing what one or two relatively simple changes can do to increase your comfort and productivity.

The ORS Group’s experienced therapists can make practical, effective recommendations to modify the workplace and ensure it is set up to encourage the best outcomes, happier people and optimum productivity levels. We do this by identifying, then eliminating, Health & Safety risks and assessing specific individual requirements.

We provide assistance to workers and employers through both Physical and Psychological workplace assessments.

For Workers

A worksite assessment could be the key to helping you cope or perform better in your workplace. Whether you’re retuning to work after an injury or chronic illness, or whether you just feel that your working environment could be improved to allow you to do your best work, we can help.

Workplace Assessments are designed to ensure that your workplace is safe, determine whether you would benefit from modification to your workplace, equipment or tasks, ensure that you are in the optimal ergonomic set-up (both at work and home), and can be used to determine the needs of a tailored exercise program focussed on work-related fitness if you are returning to work from injury or chronic illness.

One of our qualified staff will visit your workplace to assess how you fit and move within your workspace while considering the tasks you need to perform and the tools and equipment you use. At the time of the assessment, we will work with you and your employer to make any recommended changes to your setup and work practices to optimise your work efficiencies and performance while minimising the load on your body. In a comprehensive report of the assessment, we will outline any further recommendations that were identified during the assessment.

In addition to workplace assessments we offer the following tailored services:
