Ergonomic risk assessment is an aspect of systematic work environment management.

The assessments are an aspect of the annual safety inspections and thus part of the systematic work environment management that aims to prevent the risk of illness, accidents and occupational injuries.

Ergonomic assessments can be part of annual action plans, and they entail an assessment of the workplace’s design in relation to the individual, advice and proposals for measures. Feedback is given in a written report. It is recommended that ergonomic assessments be conducted every three years, following relocation, on the arrival of new staff and in the event of problems.

Ergonomists can advise buyers when office furniture is to be purchased. Ergonomics must be taken into consideration when risk and impact assessments are conducted in connection with renovations or the construction of new buildings.

The aim is to create a well-functioning workplace based on individual needs and conditions.
