Following is a link to a website that includes a program for detailed ergonomic assessments performed by some of our staff. Colin J.Brigham, Certified Professional Ergonomist (CPE), was a project manager involved in the development of ergonomic risk assessment methodologies that were then applied by teams under his technical direction at 21 Air Force bases. In the completion of the base visits by a field staff of 8 individuals, over 2000 processes and 5000 tasks were analyzed. Risk ranking was performed, quick fixes and control approaches were also provided to these bases.
