Industrial Ergonomics Facility Assessments
Barbre Ergonomics Consulting and Training
I spend a lot of time doing on-site ergonomic assessments in client shops,
manufacturing plants, job sites, on heavy equipment, and with remote
production gangs on the track.
My shoulder-to-shoulder ergonomic jobsite assessments help you see what I
see -- opportunities to make jobs a lot easier, faster, less costly, safer, and
more comfortable to perform. I work directly with your front-line people and
specialize in complex, long-cycle job tasks that make most standardized
checklists and risk ratings useless.
My assessment reports are comprehensive and actually useful for plant
leaders to use to make the changes needed to address real problems and
make the same work easier to do.
When needed, I apply sophisticated 3D biomechanical evaluation and
human modeling software to our analysis of industrial tasks to evaluate
forces, postures, strength requirements, lifting, pushing, pulling, balance,
stability, and complex exertions.
With practical improvements and on-target training, I provide solutions to
unsolvable problems, improvements to unchangeable operations, and
fatigue relief for inherently difficult job tasks. I make my living finding ways to
make work easier, less fatiguing, faster, safer, and more cost- effective.
Many of the changes I recommend can be accomplished on the spot at low
cost, and sometimes even no cost.
Whatever your investment in ergonomic improvements, including that which
you make using Barbre Ergonomics, I see to it that it becomes an investment
in productivity, cost control, and taking care of people so they stay with you
and adopt your goals as their goals. Make sense? Let me help.
