Ayden provides a wide range of ergonomics solutions to employers in Northern Ontario to help them control hazards related to musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), including ergonomics assessments, job task analysis, physical and cognitive demands descriptions, and more. “I enjoy working in a wide variety of work environments and creatively applying my expertise to best meet the needs of unique workplaces,” he says.
Ayden’s customers appreciate his work, and understand its importance in reducing injuries:
With help from Ayden and WSPS, we have completed ergonomic and cognitive job demands assessments for many positions at our Sault Ste. Marie facility. Our results are so positive at this point that our other Canadian facilities are now conducting physical and cognitive physical demands assessments.
