Workers often ignore the signs and symptoms of musculoskeletal disorders (MSDs) until a chronic condition has developed and they often don’t know the measures they can take to prevent them. Ergonomics can seem complicated, but this program provides a simple explanation all employees can understand and apply to everyday tasks.

This training demonstrates how to reduce ergonomic injuries caused by improper posture. The course also explores work practice controls, maintaining neutral body positions and the ergonomics of lifting and carrying loads safely. Injuries from poor ergonomics can happen in any job, from a desk job to one in an industrial setting. The training gives examples on what can cause these injuries, and how to prevent them.

Use this course to train employees to recognize the signs and symptoms of MSDs and take the steps to use ergonomic work practices to prevent injuries.
