You can also uncover unexpected benefits, including increased well-being and productivity. Santinel’s ergonomics specialists can help you by focusing on effective solutions to physical, social, and mental challenges. We will introduce you to new work methods and inexpensive equipment that can significantly improve your workers’ comfort, while protecting them from MSDs.

Ergonomics Services & Strategies

Optimize your workspace’s functional design thanks to Santinel’s outstanding expertise.

Working in an office comes at its own risks. Most office jobs require employees to stay still for extended periods of time. Therefore, you should ensure that all workstations are carefully configured and present minimal risks, especially when employees are required to work extended hours. Does your organization have a large number of office workers? Santinel’s ergonomics crew can start by touring your office in order to adjust all desktop workstations.

During our tour, we will interview your workers and promote good working postures and habits. Basic habits include placing both feet flat on the ground, resting one’s back against the back of the chair, ensuring a good chair adjustment, resting one’s eyes by looking far ahead, performing stretching movements regularly, etc.

During our tour, Santinel’s specialists will also help identify workstations that require more significant adjustments or need to be reconfigured altogether. Does your office require many changes? At the end of the tour, Santinel’s ergonomics specialists will provide you with a detailed report that includes valuable recommendations.

Are you concerned with a large number of workstations in your organization? Do your employees experience major discomfort related to their posture? Santinel brings you a simple solution. Our ergonomics team will visit your organization in order to perform a workstation assessment wherever required.

We will assess problematic workstations (workspace, external devices, chair, etc.), interview employees, and gather all information related to alleged pain (if relevant) and everyday tasks. We will also observe workers in their daily routine to identify potential problems. Once Santinel’s evaluation has been completed, we will provide you with a detailed report containing our observations and recommendations.

We recommend performing an ergonomic assessment before workers complain about pain. In fact, assessments should be routinely performed whenever reorganizing the office or welcoming new or returning employees.

Santinel’s ergonomic solutions cover most subjects related to your worker’s wellbeing. However, if your organization has a major MSD issue, Santinel can provide targeted solutions tailored to your needs. This can be relevant if your workers regularly perform assignments that require repetitive or static work, significant muscular energy or heavy weight-lifting, which pose significant risks.

Santinel offers several solutions for musculoskeletal disorder prevention. Surveys, questionnaires, risk assessment, personnel training, or business coaching can be part of your solution.
