Do you want to reduce workplace related musculoskeletal discomfort, prevent injuries and WCB claims, while improving productivity? Are "ergonomic checklists" and "stretching reminders" not getting the results you seek?

Create a workplace culture of health and get up to date with office ergonomic assessment best practices.

This half day workshop provides participants with guidelines for identifying ergonomic risk factors and implementing low cost solutions in the office environment where budget and resources may be limited.

Administrative, furniture and behavioral control measures are presented. Workstation set up for multi-user, sit-stand and vehicles are discussed. Ergonomic assessment interviewing and observation techniques will be demonstrated. Ergonomic Assessment Template, Office Ergonomic Guidelines and PPT handouts are provided. 

Learning Objectives - Participants will:

  • Learn to identify common ergonomic risk factors in the office setting.
  • Be able to apply the skills of interviewing and making observations during assessments.
  • Be prepared to implement ergonomic solutions using resources provided.
