Wellnomics Online Ergonomic Assessment Tool

Employees can take an online ergonomic assessment survey hosted by Wellnomics. After you take the assessment, Wellnomics will generate a report and advise you of your ergonomic risk factors. The report will make suggestions on how to reduce these risk factors.

In Person Workstation Assessments

An optional in-person ergonomic assessment is available only upon completing the Wellnomics assessment. A copy of the completed Wellnomics report must be forwarded to your supervisor. Upon receiving supervisor approval, employees can contact RMS at 702-895-4226 to schedule a session with a Certified Ergonomic Assessment Specialist (CEAS). Supervisors will also receive a copy of the in-person report with recommended adjustments and possible ergonomic equipment suggestions.

After your assessment, you and your supervisor will receive a copy of the assessment report detailing recommended adjustments and possible ergonomic equipment suggestions.
