12 sessions – All New Topics
The successful application of ergonomic principles lies in understanding the broad scope of ergonomics: specifically the importance of recognizing physical, cognitive, psychosocial, and organizational elements of work and the capabilities and limitations of workers.
In the Monthly Ergonomic Webinar Series, we present a range of topics from Basic to Advanced including a philosophical foundation for applying ergonomics through a broad range of topics. For the Advanced sessions, the emphasis is on the details of analysis techniques, intervention effectiveness, and applications within selected industries.
Participants will be reinforced on some of their assumptions and boldly challenged on some strongly held beliefs on how to prevent injuries. The end result will be confidence in applying ergonomics in a much more effective manner.
All classes are approximately one hour— within the convenience of your home or office.
