Ergonomics in the Workplace

Learn the fundamentals of ergonomics in industrial and office workplaces. Discuss medical issues, regulatory strategies, engineering solutions and productivity improvements. If your employees experience problems with lifting, repetitive motion or overexertion, their improper work practices may cause serious and long-term disabilities. A review of safe work practices with a focus on basic ergonomics may help your organization. Develop ergonomic recognition and identification skills necessary for implementation of an overall injury prevention strategy. Discussions and exercises will focus on problem solving in real occupational situations. This is a required course for the Workplace Health and Safety Manager Certificate Program.
