Our facility planning process is a systematic approach for developing the physical setting of an organization or institution while keeping ergonomics in the forefront. It helps an organization manage one of its most important assets, the space that it occupies. When renovating or relocating, don’t bring the same design flaws with you to the next location; plan your design with ergonomics in mind. Recent developments in the Green Design Movement has integrated the need for ergonomics in design. The US Green Building Council launched the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Green Building Rating System to promote integrated, sustainable, whole-building design and operation. Within the 6 categories to achieve LEED certification is the Innovation and Design process which requires the integration of ergonomics into the plan. Worksite International, Inc. helps clients achieve the ergonomics requirements of LEED.
We combine our job analysis service in creating an ADA compliant screen that can be used pre-hire as an agility test or post –offer and fitness for duty test. The screen is designed to accurately reflect the physical demands required to perform the job so you can hire and place the most fit and qualified employees to the job. (WI does not test or evaluate employees.)
