An ergonomics assessment, also called an ergonomic risk assessment or workplace assessment, is a process used to evaluate the risk of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) due to a mismatch between workplace design and employee capabilities. Once physical risk factors are identified, steps are taken to systematically improve the work environment for employees. The goal is to improve employee well-being, job performance, and job satisfaction.
