Four-hour seminar, Part 1 of 2. Musculoskeletal injuries (MSIs) are among the leading causes of lost time and productivity for businesses—and persistent and sometimes debilitating pain for workers. Prevention starts with thoughtful design (or redesign) of workspaces and processes.
ergonomics actively involves workers and other stakeholders in this process to improve productivity
and reduce risks to safety and health. Effectively implemented Participatory Ergonomics programs
are not only associated with positive health outcomes, but also result in measurable reductions in MSI-related symptoms and injuries, workers’ compensation claims, and lost
This interactive workshop introduces practical strategies for involving workers in identifying issues and designing solutions. In this "hands-on" virtual workshop:
- Understand what a participatory ergonomics program entails and how effective it can be to
- Recognize the value in an evidence-based approach for implementing such program.
- Learn the key considerations in building a PE program
This workshop is appropriate for managers,
supervisors, safety committee members, senior leaders, strategists, and worker representatives.
