This workshop will introduce you to the basics of ergonomics, the application of specific ergonomics assessment techniques for industrial/office jobs, and the specification of ergonomics control measures. This online course is the equivalent of three days of classroom training.
This workshop introduces you to basic ergonomics principles and addresses topics such as: musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) and other ergonomics-related problems, identifying and prioritizing ergonomic stressors, determining root causes, analysis techniques, developing appropriate control measures, and design criteria. This workshop prepares you to conduct both industrial and office assessments for the control of ergonomic stressors that could potentially lead to the development of work-related musculoskeletal disorders. The course mixes lecture and “hands-on” laboratory sessions to allow you to apply techniques that will facilitate feasible, effective and justifiable solutions.
The On-Demand course is divided into seven units. Each unit will include from 30 minutes or more of recorded material (audio and video).
After completing the course materials you will have the option to take the online Ocuupational Ergonomics exam. The exam is included in the course fee. Participants who pass the exam (70% or higher) will receive a certificate.
