Course Description

Understanding & Controlling Ergonomic Risk Factors Interactive Online Training

Ergonomics can be complicated, but this program provides a simple explanation all employees can understand. Ergonomic controls are used in almost all workplaces to prevent musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), also called cumulative trauma disorders or repetitive stress injuries. Workers often ignore the signs and symptoms of these disorders until a chronic condition has developed and they often don't know the measures they can take to prevent them.

Topics include:

  • MSDs and their signs and symptoms
  • The Ergonomics Program
  • Ergonomic controls
  • Reporting MSD symptoms
  • Work practice controls for various body parts
  • Lifting and carrying loads

Objective

That's the purpose of this program--to explain what ergonomics and musculoskeletal disorders are and the measures your organization takes to control ergonomic risk factors. More importantly, the program reviews work control practices that workers can follow to prevent musculoskeletal injuries and illnesses. It also features both office and industrial settings to illustrate important lessons about ergonomics.
