160507 – Putting Ergonomics to Work
Putting Ergonomics to Work introduces learners to using ergonomics in the workplace, whether it be working in an office, using a computer, performing repetitive physical work, lifting and carrying heavy items, or working with heavy tools and equipment.
All learners will receive an overview of recognizing symptoms of possible musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs). Then, based on their response to a self-identifying question at the beginning of the course, employees will learn about using ergonomic best practices for the specific types of physical actions they perform on the job.
Finally, all learners are encouraged to speak up if they learn about or see any ergonomic concerns in the workplace.
