Workstation analysis of a financial company
A financial company asked us to carry out an ergonomic evaluation of the Hedge Fund trading area. The area had recently been set up, and the employer was concerned because a number of employees had started to report back, neck and upper limb pain.
Each Hedge Fund manager was assessed, and from this a pattern of problems emerged. It was noted that the workstation setup did not take into account any ergonomic principles which had led to hedge fund managers suffering from discomfort and in some cases pain.
A trial trading desk was set up and each manager spent time working at the desk, comments were collected and the new set up was undertaken based on ergonomic criteria and the user trial. The traders then received regular monitoring and the ability to report problems as soon as any manifested.
