Green Star Ergonomics
ViOffice Office Ergonomics
ViOffice addresses essential workplace factors including job and task analysis, design for health and productivity, equipment selection for work teams or prescription for an individual. We are engaged to help with pre-occupancy and post-occupancy fit outs, as well as training to large or small groups, and 1:1 service consultation. We help, also, with advisory services that support a distributed workforce (how is work managed when work can occur anywhere, anytime?).
The ViOffice program considers:
Distributed workforce management: strategies, systems, and risk management to support evolving and agile work where work may occur anywhere, anytime. We ask: Are workers working from home or living at work? And what are the implications of these new arrangements?

ViChairSelector: a web-based tool to help procurement and project management teams determine their selection criteria and test weighted options for office chairs. When managing a large fit-out and in need of defensible decision making to support procurement decisions, transparency and communication among work teams can be aided by multi-criterion decision making. This decision-making tool supports the evaluation of office workstation chairs.
Agile and activity-based work design philosophies, concepts, features, and strategies can be provided while working with directly with design teams.
