ERGONOMIC CONSULTATION

Ergonomics

Ergonomics in itself is a method of assessing potential or current problems and creating solutions. Whether your problems are with productivity, injuries, design or quality we will assist you in finding the solution that is right for you. When ergonomic changes and processes are implemented as part of the business plan, it has been shown to return $3 for every $1 spent. If you are in the planning stages of a new start-up; redesigning a current product; or working on improving existing facilities; then an ergonomic consultation is right for you.

There is no "One Size Fits All' program for effective ergonomics. Our approach is adapted to the nature of the company, its business, employees, customers, products and work processes.  Whether you are reactive and responding to problem areas or you are proactive and anticipating potential problem areas, we will tailor the interventions and programs to fit your needs.

 
Consulting

Our consultation projects deliver to you a clearly written, dynamic report with objective documentation that is supported by proven, researched models and pictorial or video documentation. Vendor information can be included to make understanding and finding the products you need, easier. The information is reviewed in a working meeting (many times in the work area), with all who will be involved in the process, so the findings are clear to all involved and implementation is simplified. This process provides for feedback of feasibility by a number of different individuals with diverse backgrounds. This also serves as a planning time to meet your short and long term planning activity goals.

We adhere to the following guiding principles to provide services that are proactive, affordable and sustainable.

  • Management commitment to the process and to the KYEL Group Inc. partnership standards.
  • Employee involvement in all stages.
  • Training included for all those involved. 
  • Hazard Information and Reporting
  • Evaluation and Process Management necessary to ensure program is working correctly.
  • Process Tailoring: We will work with you to ensure the ergonomic recommendations fit seamlessly into any process initiatives          you are currently utilizing or wish to use. (5S, VPP, Six Sigma: Green and Black Belt projects, and Kaizen).
