Office Ergonomics: Preventing Injuries

Thursday, November 15, 2018

9:00 AM – 12:00 PM (English)

 

According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), ergonomic injuries accounted for 33 percent of all workplace injuries and illnesses requiring days away from work in 2011. If your employees spend their time sitting, using a computer, using the phone, keying, sorting, stapling or filing, please attend this webinar. Training an onsite person enables your company to be proactive in anticipating ergonomic concerns and provides a consistent manner in addressing discomfort before it becomes a medical claim.

 

Topics:

  • Understand how work-related musculoskeletal disorders (WMSDs) develop in the office and home.

  • Gain a working knowledge of the ergonomics problem solving process.

  • Be able to provide assistance to employees who may have related issues or concerns.

  • Teach simple basic concepts to prevent the onset of WMSDs in the office environment.

  • Learn an easy 3 step process to help prevent “office ergo” injuries.Conduct an effective ergonomic evaluation

Knowing and understanding some of the most common office ergonomic related injury triggers will prepare you to address the most common office related “ergonomic injuries” encountered by  our office staff. This seminar will prepare you to successfully address the more common injuries or discomfort triggers encountered in most office environments.

 

At the end you should be able to understand, recognize and respond to common situations that might cause your office staff to develop physical discomfort or pain associated with their daily duties. We will also explore the “home” or “nonwork related” factors that can lead to either the development or worsening of pain or discomfort.
