COEE Technical Certification

Humanscale Consulting offers a technical certification in office ergonomics to those who are able to demonstrate proficiency on the ergonomic assessment process. Following formal training, an online examination is administered which is designed to evaluate several core competencies. The exam is organized into two sections, multiple choice questions and a mock workstation assessment. Attendees who achieve a passing score on the exam are awarded the designation ‘Certified Office Ergonomics Evaluator’.
 

 

‘Clean Sweep’ Training and Assessment Program

Humanscale’s ‘Clean Sweep’ Training and Assessment Program in Office Ergonomics combines ergonomics training sessions with individualized workstation assessments. This approach has proven to be the most cost effective means of improving employee awareness of ergonomics while maximizing worker comfort and reducing injury risks. Three versions of the program are currently offered.

BASIC

In this version, organizations can choose between formal sessions of ergonomics training or informal ‘cube to cube’ style trainings. Following training, our consultants will conduct an ergonomic assessment of each employee’s workstation. Adjustments are made to the existing equipment as necessary to mitigate postural risks. Workstation assessments require between 5-10 minutes per person. A meeting is typically held at the end of the assessment period to discuss site trends and improvement strategies.

     

Included in Basic Program

Office Ergonomics 101 Training

Workstation assessments for each employee

STANDARD

Our standard approach is expanded to include documentation and data analysis of all workstation assessments. A one-page checklist is completed for each employee that allows our consultants to record pre-assessment discomfort data, postural risk factors and existing equipment challenges. Each completed checklist is then entered into our web-based assessment tool and a comprehensive report is prepared that summarizes overall site trends and recommended follow-up steps for each employee. Workstation assessments require approximately 15 minutes per employee. In a full business day, each ergonomist is typically able to fit 20-25 employees.

     

Included in Standard Program

Office Ergonomics 101 Training

Workstation assessments for each employee

Documented assessments for each employee with recommendations for improvement plus a written report detailing site trends

ADVANCED

Our advanced program extends our standard offering to include full program implementation. A more robust online pre-assessment survey is used to collect task and discomfort data. Following employee assessments, additional site visits are made to assist with, and oversee the implementation of workstation changes. Workstation images are taken pre and post intervention, and a post assessment survey is administered 4-6 weeks following the intervention in order to track progress. A full discomfort analysis is performed for each employee and employee feedback is collected to gauge the effectiveness of the overall program. This information is then presented in a final written report.
