Identify and mitigate musculoskeletal risks in the workplace

Cardinus has partnered with Longitude6, an Australian company specialising in Industrial ergonomics and workplace injury cost reduction. Longitude6 use sensor and motion capture technology to analyse a broad range of repetitive, every day activities undertaken by Industrial workers. This data identifies the risk of workplace related injuries before they happen.

Provide the best risk solutions for your workers

Cardinus Risk Management and Longitude6 have developed the most innovative method of sourcing the cause of risk activities within your workplace. We provide a unique and dynamic program of assessments of the job tasks your people undertake. The program analyzes each worker’s functional capacity to provide you with a validated plan of how to reduce your high risk job tasks. The Wearable Sensor Technology quantifies the musculoskeletal risk of tasks in the workplace by providing video analysis and objective data. This gives you insight into the level of risk associated with each task and identifies contributing risk factors.

The Motion Capture Technology determines the mobility and stability positioning of an individual’s musculoskeletal system, the ability to gauge a worker’s functional capacity and place them in a role that is most suited to their existing condition and, if required, further intervention is available to facilitate Fitness for Work rehabilitation. We’ll assess the tasks carried out within your organization and the workers who perform them, to provide you with a complete evaluation. This will include guidance on the identified risks and suggestions on how to modify tasks to reduce musculoskeletal risks, in a practical, and priority-based manner.
