Training The Core Concepts of Occupational Ergonomics

Training Course Description

Ergonomics is an applied science which emphasises the importance of designing workstations, so the workstation is appropriate to the individual worker. The objective is to "design out" as many ergonomic risk factors as possible in an effort to reduce musculoskeletal disorders (MSD).
This course emphasizes recognition of musculoskeletal disorders in institutional, office, and industrial settings. Topics include anthropometry, working postures, task analysis, manual materials handling and environmental factors. Upon completion, participants should be able to recognize ergonomic problems and recommend appropriate control measures.

Training Course Objectives

  • Identifying signs and symptoms of ergonomic ailments.
  • Identifying industries and processes at high risk for cumulative trauma disorders.
  • Conducting ergonomic analysis of work place tasks.
  • Applying principles of universal and ergonomic design at a basic level.
  • Implementing administrative and engineering controls for ergonomic problems.
  • Identifying ergonomic stresses associated with video display terminals.
  • Using anthropometric tables to understand design parameters.

Who Should Attend?

  • Workers
  • Health and Safety Committee Members
  • Safety Managers
  • Project Managers
  • Plant Managers and Supervisors
