Understanding and Controlling Ergonomic Risk Factors

Repetitive tasks often result in musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs), which are the cause of 34 percent of all injuries resulting in lost work time. Teaching employees what the symptoms of MSDs are, how they can minimize the risk of an MSD on the job, and why it is important to comply with the safety measures your company has put in place is the goal of this video-based training.

It discusses ergonomics, the signs and symptoms of MSDs, engineering and administrative controls to help prevent MSDs, and how personal protective equipment can create a barrier between the worker and the hazard. This video training provides thorough information on how to maintain a neutral posture and neutral positions for the wrists, arms, neck, and back. It explains and shows safe lifting and carrying techniques and provides information on mechanical controls to aid in lifting and moving loads.

This video helps make employees aware of their responsibility to protect themselves from MSDs. It is appropriate for new hires and provides useful reminders on an annual training basis.
