Industrial Ergonomics focuses on potential ergonomic problems in manufacturing, assembly and warehousing situations. The course shows employees how to recognize ergonomic problems, the potential adverse effects bad ergonomics can have, and practical solutions employees themselves can use to help deal with ergonomic problems. Every job makes a different set of demands on the body. How this impacts employees, and what can be done to reduce or eliminate adverse effects, is an important safety issue. While there is a lot of debate about the many aspects of ergonomics, everyone agrees on one thing… that by using proper ergonomic techniques employees will be safer and more productive, as well as feel better at the end of the day. Areas covered in the course include physiology of the body, parts of the body most effected by ergonomic problems, eyestrain, pragmatic preventative measures, correct use of equipment, exercises and stress release, and more.
