Ergonomics in the Workplace
This mobile compatible course is designed to help employees identify work-related ergonomic problems and learn to apply the principles of ergonomics in order to make their jobs less physically demanding, thereby increasing their overall efficiency and reducing injuries.
Employees who work in non-office environments are routinely required to carry out tasks that involve movement and physical exertion with poor ergonmic factors. These forceful exertions associated with such tasks may lead to fatigue, musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), and other serious injuries.
- Discuss what is meant by ergonomics.
- Name the factors that may contribute to problems in a non-office work environment.
- Identify the causes of musculoskeletal disorders.
- Apply effective ergonomic principles at your workplace.
