costs in Canada.1
AN INNOVATIVE APPROACH TO WORKSTATION ERGONOMICS
One in 10 Canadian office workers are affected by work-related repetitive strain injuries, many of which lead to decreased productivity
and increased absenteeism, resulting in a higher number of disability claims.2 To address these trends, ergonomic wellness is becoming a
growing priority for a number of organizations. A common barrier, however, is implementing a cost-effective process that identifies those
at high risk while providing ongoing value for the entire organization.
At Apex Occupational Health and Wellness, one of our core principles is providing valuable services that meet overall organizational needs.
When clients began asking for workstation ergonomic assessments for their entire staff, Apex was committed to developing a means to
accomplish this in an efficient, effective, and affordable way — this is where the idea behind ErgoBlitz was born.

ErgoBlitz focuses on early intervention while giving companies a tool to manage
work-related discomforts and identify employees who need in-person assessments.
