While in the laboratory, you mind may be focused on obvious health risks, such as using hazardous chemicals, but these are not the only hazards to be aware of. The way you sit, stand or even hold a tool may be causing unnecessary strain on your body. This On Demand training lesson teaches you how ergonomics help you adapt your work habits to your unique physical makeup, thus keeping you healthy in the laboratory.

Even simple tasks such as sitting in a chair or reading a manual may pose ergonomic threats. Sitting improperly can strain your back and neck, while holding your material either too far or too close may place undue stress on your eyes. This online training video demonstrates how to recognize ergonomic dangers, as well as how to adjust your actions in order to prevent them. Information on proper lifting techniques, as well as the best body positions that reduce exertion is included.

Knowing and understanding ergonomics helps prevent workplace injuries. Disregarding proper ergonomic standards may temporarily or permanently render you unable to work. Use this Video On Demand training to learn how to address ergonomic hazards, prevent injuries, and keep a safe and healthy laboratory.

This course has been updated to include GHS container labels and Safety Data Sheets (SDS) for GHS compliance.
