Welcome to the NEW workSMART Ergonomics!

workSMART Ergonomics is now a Division of SIX Safety Systems

Dear workSMART Customers,

As you may (or may not) have heard, WorkSMART Ergonomics Ltd. was acquired by SIX Safety Systems several years ago. All of the content found on the worksmart.ca website has since been migrated to sixsafetysystems.com. 

What does that mean you may wonder? First let me introduce SIX Safety Systems to you. SIX Safety is the first full service, solutions driven company that addresses ALL aspects of fitness for duty. Traditionally, fit for duty was equated with…well…peeing in a cup! We’re here to redefine the industry. SIX Safety is composed of safety and human factors professionals that have partnered with world leading researchers, universities, and technology providers to offer a comprehensive approach to fitness for duty - addressing drugs & alcohol, fatigue management and human factors performance.

Our goal is simple; we will deliver only evidenced-based and scientifically driven solutions to optimize the workforce. This includes: 

Rest assured, we are only getting stronger. Along with the same great team from WorkSMART, I am thrilled to be a champion for the new fit for duty direction.

LUCI™ Fatigue Detection Technology

Technology alone does not mitigate fatigue and distraction risk, but is an integral component of an organization's comprehensive fatigue risk management system (FRMS). LUCI uses near-infrared sensors placed on a operator's dash/workstation to detect and measure the operator's eye movements. The readings are immediately analyzed to detect levels of alertness in real-time.
