What will an ergonomist do when performing an assessment?
Take measurements using tools like tape measures and force gauges
Talk with workers about the work they are performing
Take photos and videos of the workplace and workers performing activities under study (“a picture is worth a thousand words”)
It is common for workers to not want to be photographed. Their wishes will always be respected. I always try to avoid photographing workers faces. However, this may not be possible if head/neck postures are being studied. If a face does appear in a photo, I always obscure it, if it is used in a follow up report. Part of a professional ergonomists code of ethics is to maintain client confidentiality, however if there is anything that you don’t want photographed be sure to let me know.
