Onsite Consulting

Ergonomics Consulting

The Back School has been providing OSHA-compliant ergonomics consulting services to employers for over 35 years.

Because each organization and its processes, procedures and needs vary greatly, each consulting engagement is customized to that organization.

Whether the issue at hand is a high injury rate and costly workers' comp premiums, increased risk of injury due to job requirements, or lack of employee productivity due to discomfort, fatigue or absenses from work,  we will assess the environment and risk factors, and develop a focused, actionable custom solution resulting in a sustainable return on investment year after year: decreased injury/lower workers' comp costs; reduced injury risk; higher employee morale, productivity and job satisfaction.

Our customized programs are implemented onsite by The Back School and include direct interaction with the employer’s workforce.
