In this three-day seminar, you will learn how to select and utilize key analysis tools employed to define workplace risk, evaluate hand/wrist and upper extremity-intensive tasks, and quantify low-back and manual materials handling activities. This workshop will provide you with ergonomics design tools that will allow you to develop a solution that is feasible, effective and justifiable. You may bring a videotape of your operation for review by the instructor.
