A big thank you to the partners and clients who helped us develop our updated self-adjustment tool – launched August 16, 2012!
Like the old “self-assessment” version, the newly named self-adjustment tool is valuable in helping individuals determine causes of discomfort in the workplace and solutions to help alleviate that discomfort. The individual answers a series of questions about their workstation, furniture and equipment, and where the individual is feeling discomfort. Once the individual submits the completed questionnaire, a list of suggestions and solutions are produced.
However, those of you who have used the self-assessment tool before will see some fantastic changes. It is still free to use, but now features sleeker graphics, is more interactive, user-friendly, and has been updated to address current issues such as dual monitors and laptops! Better still, our clients have the option of purchasing collected symptom data from the questionnaires to help determine common discomfort issues among their staff in their workplace. This information is anonymous, but does help target ergonomic intervention planning as well as budget for future furniture and equipment considerations.
