person. It prioritize people first, taking into consideration their
physical capabilities, capacities and limitations. Ergonomics and human
factors aims to ensure that there is a good fit and synergy between
tasks, equipment, information and environment suit each worker.Objectives of the This Program
human factors program offered by Urbanrehab aims to help your organization
to maintain, grow and bolster the highest quality of working life
practicable by employees by:
The program consists of three segments: Evaluation, Training and Education Evaluation
- reducing the potential for
on-the-job injuries and the consequent costs to the organization in
terms of loss of time at work and medical treatment
- to encourage an awareness of safe work practices in the workplace
- to promote the health awareness and job satisfaction in the workplace
overall goal of the ergonomic analysis is to gather and provide
pertinent data and information that will facilitate the health
initiatives or the development of an environment that will enhance both
the human performance and well being of employees at the workplace. From
the evaluation, we will generate a comprehensive report that contains
the hazards and risks identified as well as suggestions for improving
workstations and work processes (refer to diagram at the bottom of the
page).There are three levels of evaluation:
Training and Education
- Comfort Level Survey
(Symptoms Survey) – this survey is to determine and analyse the
subjective and objective comfort level of the employees in a particular
job or work area. From the survey, we will be able to provide you with
information on your employees’ health profile. We recommend that the
survey covers all the employees or an appropriate sample representative
of the organization.
- On-Site Evaluation
- this involves the analysis of work set-up and workstation and the
identification of risk factors. The objective is to compose and gather a
list of human factors risk factors associated with specific duties and
tasks. The methods used consists of observation and measurement.
Following the evaluation, we will provide a report for the area
assessed. The report will include cost-effective recommendations on
workstation designs and preventing and alleviating work-related
- Follow Up Consultation
- the follow up consultation is to re-evaluate recommendations and
changes to ensure that the implementations do not have a negative impact
on other portions of the job. A follow up Comfort-Level Survey may also
be conducted 6 months after the implementation of the changes and
training to measure the outcomes of the program.

sufficiently informed and educated on the ergonomic hazards to which
