“ErgoAnalyst has enabled Queensland Rail to effectively identify, assess, control and review its hazardous manual tasks in a way that fosters collaboration between management and employees. By visualising the risk management process, ErgoAnalyst enables the workforce to be engaged as experts in their field, without complicating the process using clumsy risk matrices.”
Senior Safety Manager
"Rio Tinto Coal Australia first implemented ErgoAnalyst in early 2012. We have found it to be an excellent tool for participative ergonomics, allowing us to assess, prioritise and develop controls for our ergonomic risks, as well as raise awareness of ergonomics."
Manager Health & Safety, Coal Australia
"We are seeing some big shifts in the thinking of our guys based on what they’ve learnt from ErgoAnalyst so far and I think this year will see some major changes and further application of the system.”
Corporate HSEQ Manager
"Employers wanting to make sense of the regulations and code of practice relating to hazardous manual tasks need go no further than the ErgoAnalyst risk management software tool. ErgoAnalyst provides a visible structure to the risk management process. It facilitates a practical and illustrated approach to the hazard identification, risk assessment and control sequence and fosters collaboration between management and workers. A great education tool and an effective risk management methodology."
