Humanscale is the premier designer and manufacturer of ergonomic products that improve health and comfort at work. Our award-winning office solutions – including self adjusting seating, sit/stand desks, monitor arms and task lighting – inspire movement and support the user in their every posture.
Humanscale's Design Studio, based in New York City, abides by the philosophy that good design achieves more with less. We regularly partner with esteemed industrial designers and are known for our history of collaboration with the iconic designer Niels Diffrient. Our innovations have been honored with more than 200 prestigious awards since 2007 and featured in various museums, such as the Museum of Modern Art.
Sustainability of both design and materials is at the heart of what we do, and we solve functional problems as simply and elegantly as possible while consuming less of the Earth’s limited resources.
Our first step is to simply become immersed in your organizations’ current needs and challenges. Together, we engage key stakeholders, elevate awareness of best practices and outline a framework for the implementation of a sustainable ergonomics program.
Next, we investigate key areas or concern. Our team of board certified ergonomists will document and analyze site trends, evaluate existing design standards and review your current program. From there, we will work a cost effective strategy to reduce risk and improve employee comfort and health.
Successful action plans require realistic program objectives and timelines. Together we formulate an approach by defining short and long-term goals, leveraging available resources and outlining stakeholder responsibilities.
Employee training, assessment, and workstation enhancement form the core of our implementation process. Interactive group training sessions and individualized assessments elevate awareness of proper configuration, improve posture, and reduce employee discomfort. Our certification program in office ergonomics builds in-house expertise of the assessment process and becomes a first line of defense for preventing workplace injuries.
In an effort to gauge the effectiveness of specific program components, we track and analyze a variety of data sets and performance indicators. This process enables our team to make informed program suggestions that will lead to further process improvements.
Program maintenance is critical for continued success. In this phase, our team is a resource for recurring training, assessment support and program guidance. As your organization shifts employees between facilities or acquires additional facilities, we work to ensure that consistent workstation design and training strategies are implemented throughout.
