Course Description

Employees who work in non-office environments are routinely required to carry out tasks that involve movement and physical exertion. These forceful exertions associated with such tasks may lead to fatigue, musculoskeletal disorders, and other serious injuries. This course is designed to help employees identify work-related problems and learn to apply the principles of ergonomics in order to make their jobs less physically demanding, thereby increasing their overall efficiency.
