Information collected during ergonomics interventions

The following information may be collected as part of our ergonomics services, depending on the type of service received: name, address, email address, anthropometric measurements (body dimensions such as height, manual dominance, knee height in a seated position , elbow, this is not about biometrics), medical information, video recording as part of work situations (always with the informed consent of the participants). This information is collected for the purposes of carrying out the ergonomics mandate, to offer home services, and for billing reasons, if applicable. This information could be transmitted to a third party (i.e. the company that mandates the ergonomist), for file management purposes and the implementation of ergonomic solutions. The company could, where applicable, be located outside the province of Quebec. Any person can refuse the collection of this information, or ask the ergonomics service provider to stop the collection. Refusal to collect this information could make it impossible to complete the ergonomics mandate, depending on the case.
