The Risk Assessment Guidelines strive to optimally balance three important criteria:
Workstation Design: Is the workstation designed and adjusted to promote optimal biomechanical efficiency for the employee to perform their job?
Proper Biomechanical Technique: Are the employees using proper biomechanical technique and appropriate posture when performing their job tasks?
Employee Risk Assessment: Does the employee have functional deficits such as: excessive deconditioning syndrome, degenerative disc and joint disease, minor nerve entrapments, repetitive strain, muscular adhesions, poor balance and motor control of their core musculature?
The worksite analysis is performed to develop risk management standards for all departments of your companies to assure that the most biomechanically efficient procedures and design are implemented. Special attention is placed on higher risk job tasks with prior incidences reported. Dr. Coffey performs his work site risk assessment with your safety manager and prefers that all of the employees who work in that department be present to gather all pertinent information and concerns. The concerns and solutions are collected and incorporated into the educational training workshops.
One of the unique aspects of Dr. Coffey’s prevention program is that he can quickly identify employee risk factors with functional deficits such as; excessive deconditioning syndrome, degenerative disc and joint disease, minor nerve entrapments and repetitive strain, poor balance and motor control of their core musculature. These are very important risk factors which can easily be identified and corrected before the onset of symptoms appear.
